    *sighs* I have an IQ of 137 and I can't apply it because my short-term memory is so messed up. It drives me up the wall.

    Yes IF they meet the criteria without embellishment and exaggeration on the claim forms. If they manage to complete the forms without CAB or DIAL to manipulate the information to include all the 'buzz phrases' etc.

    I asked Dial for assistance once to complete an AA form for my husband. It never got sent as neither of us could honestly agree with the way the DIAL representative manipulated the given information to skew the information towards a favourable (to my husband)result.

    I'd not be at all surprised if a lot of people whose forms are completed by external organisations get refused when they have to have a medical.

    I should be alright then as I have always filled all my & my son's forms in myself. ;)
    I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.

    under the same rules that are in place now do you think your sons may recive it at a later date when over 16,

    what worrys me is people not reciving HRM when it would help with there health and to support there needs and if the critreia is set even higher they may lose out and because worse not better because that wasnt put in place at the right time ,

    my friend is blind he will soon be able to get HRM due to his blindness would this be taken away after all the fight thats happened over this i hope not because before i was ill it was me that used to take him around the shops in and out of taxis when a car for him would have helped him when the weather was so bad i had to do a shop for him as he couldnt get out of the house, is that going to be the same for others with the cuts i hope not

    Only one of my boys receive DLA, the other two do not despite having disabilities....

    Regarding youngest and his DLA once 16, what will be, will be....and who knows what the future will hold. He may improve to such an extent he may not require it, he may stay the same or he may get worse, 16 is still some time to go.

    Whatever, it will be his decision on if he wants to claim it as an adult..just like it is my eldest sons decision not to claim DLA despite daily partial and full dislocations and pain.
    We made it! Two graduated, 1 currently at university, been hard work but it shows there is a possibility of a chance of normal (ish) life after a diagnosis (or two) of ASD. It's not been the easiest route but I am so glad I ignored everything and everyone and did my own therapies with them.
    Eldests' EDS diagnosis 4.5.10, mine 13.1.11 eekk!

    I get fed up with people slagging off DLA.

    I applied recently for it and was successful for it but it is awful so many people are so bitter and critical of people's reasons for getting it.

    What I would like to know is those that are DLA claim haters - what do YOU think the criteria for eligibility should be??

    By the sounds of it someone who has to suck food through a straw.

    I think DLA is excellent. I just think that it is only right that people should be asked to prove their need for it and actually then get the service that they say they need.

    well alot of people dont even know what dyslexia or dyspraxia including a few Gp's i have spoke to about it and dyselxia is comman really so what chance have people with the harder to cope dyspraxia, adhd etc have needs wise

    I do not believe there is a GP in the country who does not know what dyslexia and dyspraxia is.

    Well I had to do that. You have to complete an extensive and to be frank traumatising form which is then backed up by medical evidence. At the discretion of the decision maker they can arrange a medical.

    In some instances this is not necessary as it is quite clear what is wrong with people from the evidence provided.

    I actually did not have to go through an official DWP medical but my evidence is strong and backed up well. I would have gone through a medical but what a waste of time and money when they will only confirm what was on the paper by specialists in the field. DWP doctors are often incompetent and unable to make medical decisions in a specialism.

    For example you can go to your GP for a complaint but are referred to a specialist for specific treatment. It is no different with the DWP. In effect they send out a "locum GP" with a scraping of knowledge in a claimant's condition and needs.

    Perhaps the DWP should deploy a specialist in a claimants case? Surely this is the best way instead of the "generalised quacks" currently utilised.

    .
    The majority of the DLA form is tick boxes and questions like "how many times a day", for "how many minutes a day". Certainly not traumatic imho.

    :D
