I'm not sure if this has been linked before, but I've been sent a newsletter from our local council and it's given a site address that supposedly gives help when claiming DLA:

"Claiming DLA can be a complicated process, but help is available. Tell It Like It Is! is a guide to claiming DLA for a child with disabilities or special needs by the Disability Alliance. They can be contacted at www.disabilityalliance.org/tel.htm"

Please please please do not take offence!!! I have found a DLA guide on a website i visited www.cerebra.org.uk it is fantastic for all children on the spectrum. M is awaiting diagnosis for ADHD and this has been most helpful to me for my claim. It covers all types of mental disabilities and not just ones caused by accidents (which is what i first thought when i went on to the site. If you are making your initial claim for DLA give this site a visit it helps so much.

Hello

Did you know you can access the 'bible' that the non-medical decision makers refer to for deciding DLA claims:

Go to http://www.dss.gov.u...ations/dwp/dmg/

then click on 'Vol 10' in the upper row and use the drop down!

Some very interesting reading - thought it might help someone when fill in those awful forms!! :D :P

I must have something about the new rates somewhere but thanks for posting these. I don't remember anything about a Christmas Bonus for DLA, hmm, maybe I just haven't noticed it! I'm a bit vague about which benefits come from where!

Hi the xmas bonus went up to 70 per year so as we already had 10 we are owed another 60.

Does it mean that from now on the Christmas bonus will be 70 or was it just this once?

No the christmas bonus is now 70 a year per benefit per person so if your child recieves dla they will get 70 at christmas and if you get carers you will also recieve 70 christmas bonus from now on.This is not a one off this is a yearly payment and lets be honest it is well overdue there was not much you could get with the 10.
