That is disgusting - I would make a formal complaint - pointing out that if they had any understanding of autism they would realise that cancelling the appointment 5 minutes before they were due is totally unacceptable and is going to make another appointment that much harder for T.

:jawdrop:  Just got our decision letter.  enhanced daily living and enhanced mobility.  DLA was middle rate care, and lower rate mobility.  I know he's the same , but it's a reality check as to how disabling his ASD is; I'm more used to people thinking he is more able than I do.

Good to hear of someone being successful IP. How long does the award last for (I'm just curious if they say it is for a period of time before review). I haven't paid much attention to PIP stuff with DS1 being 11 but always useful to start gathering some awareness!! xx

3 years Tangled.

 

For us the whole process was stress free.  So much else was going on that I didn't complete the initial forms so had the home visit which was very  efficient as we had someone who was knowledgeable about ASD.  She was very focused, and willing to listen.

5 days notice of the interview ( at home at their request, but suited us)  and less than a month to get the decision. Painless in comparison to DLA applications.

That sounds really quick and efficient IP. :)

 

In this area it seems new applications are taking about 10 months before they are being looked at.
