Paeds not papers.

@MyDcAreMarvel This is the issue I have. All his paperwork states he is a good sleeper because up until 6 months ago he was!! He finally got his ADHD diagnosis in June but it was very matter of fact and quick based off of his Conners scores and I wasn’t given the opportunity to chat about anything else. In hindsight I would’ve but alas I did not. In future at every appointment I will make sure everything gets discussed and documented. So not really sure what to do

@MyDcAreMarvel So basically all my night time issues I’ve written on the form are totally contradicted by the clinic notes. I think I may have to admit defeat on this one

@Lisastevo82 it is more likely that they DM will give more weight to the paperwork . However dla is meant to be self/parental assessment so if you state clearly that things have changed and that the ADHD appointment was rushed due to Covid so you didn’t get chance to discus sleep he could still get night needs awarded.
There is nothing to lose by mentioning the new night needs.

@MyDcAreMarvel Thanks for your help. One last thing, would the contradiction in what I’ve said and what is in the clinic reports cause them to not award at all? I don’t want the DM to think I’m making stuff up and throw out the application. Maybe I’m overthinking

@Lisastevo82 no that wouldn’t happen, you have evidence to support your child’s needs in other areas.
That wouldn’t be following the guidance.

@Lisastevo82 This is the same issue I have been worrying about as well. All of the professional reports I submitted except 2 (one of which was her ASD diagnosis) were from 2019. I explained it by saying we'd had no in-person appointments since Covid, which was the reason why.

Also, all reports from 2019 say she has no sleep issues, whereas now she does! She wakes up a few times each night and is ready to play. If she manages to sleep through, it's only until about 4am!

I figured I would submit all the reports as they are labelling everything clearly, and fill out the form according to how my DD is now, and if they want any further information, they will ask. I only submitted my form on Wednesday this week, so I have another 8 to go before I hear back by the sounds of it!

It's so frustrating when you hear people who sent forms after you have got it all sorted.
Obviously I'm delighted for the children/parents concerned but it's such a worrying time waiting for an answer I can't help but feel we must be getting turned down when they are taking so long with our forms 🙁

I definitely understand where your coming from I know a few people who have sent after me and had their response before me I honestly just think it all depends who's desk it lands on and how much evidence is sent hope you hear soon x
