  1. Not for me; but my brother: He had one yesterday and mum came along with him. He asked his address, telephone number, DOB, etc. He was told (he's in WRAG - appealing) that he has to either do education or find a job. Are you required to do these things? I thought the stuff discussed in WFIs were just recommendations and you don't have to do anything? The woman then admitted she's clueless about Aspergers Syndrome. By this point my brother was twitching. (if I do this, it's generally a sign of sensory overload / I'm starting to get uncomfortable an am about to have a meltdown of some sort) The lady then gave him and mum a lecture and asked him how long he's had Aspergers for? Mum replied and said that he was diagnosed at 14. The lady then made some comment about how he can't stay on benefits for ever. What business is that of hers anyway? Yes, like me, he's considered high functioning; but with some of the issues associated with Autism / Aspergers, getting a job is bloody difficult. And then there's the attitudes from other people... Mum has contacted a local support group to get advice on this. On a side note - I asked mum if brother had been called for an assessment by ATOS and she said no. (I wasn't either - but was put into the support group) How can they just put someone in WRAG by the stuff that's been written on the forms? It would have made more sense to see him and then decide whether it's support group, WRAG or fit for work and not WRAG straight off.
