hi i'm new here and have a child with not yet diagnosed autism and Asperger aged 5. i have made a claim for dla but have been turned down i wrote a lengthy letter for the mandatory reconsideration which i don't think even got read. and i'm now doing an appeal but i feel like i should give up on this. i just feel tired and sad every time have to do these forms. all i know is what i go through everyday with him can't be part of a normal 5 year old like they are trying to tell me. if it is then i guess i'm a rubbish mum as other people have more then one kid and cope why am i finding it so hard. i don't know what to do and i have no one to ask or even talk to. is anyone else feeling the same or have had similar stories. or even success story's with an appeal. id appreciate it right now .

I'm just at the start of the dla process. It's taking forever to fill in.

I can only imagine how tough it must be to be turned down after you have poured your heart out.

Really hope you get a good result at the appeal.

It will probably be easier if you actually have a diagnosis to support the claim.
