    I was asked about Facebook but I do have speech enabled text on my phone which reads things to me, and I also have speech to text software which allows me to dictate rather than type when my fatigue is bad or the pain in my hands is bad. She was so fascinated about how my software works she didn’t much ask me about what I actually do on Facebook!

    I have my PiP assessments at home.

    I have been asked about my use of the laptop...including social media…,part of my claim is related to my Autism, so I would expect the assessor to look into my social interaction.

    There were also some very unsubtle questions...'oh what a pretty crochet table cloth...did you make that yourself?'...to which Mum - always with me at assessments - pointed out that as my forms show, I have very poor fine motor skills and would NEVER manage such delicate work, Mum had made the cloth for me.
