Well, so much for 1/2 hour hearing, I was there for over 2 hours!!! :shock:

 

And the result?............. Adjourned. I kid you not.

 

Apparently, the huge amount of case law, testimonies from school, family friends, people who do actually know my son and my own 6 pages statement comprehensively demolishing the DWP's case isn't enough if there isn't a Dr's report... :-|

 

Well, yeah. Apart from his autism, T. is actually very healthy and hasn't been seen by the GP for years. What am I supposed to do, take him there once a year so they can confirm he is still autistic? :rolleyes:

 

Anyway, I pointed out that a CAMHS appointment in our area would take between 18 and 24 mths, possibly longer, and that the Ed psych for the LEA wouldn't be interested in following him up since he is in private school, so what to do? Eventually settled on asking the Ed psych from the private school (who has after all known him for nigh on 4 yrs) for a report, meanwhile, I must still get the CAMHS referral in action, and I must keep a diary of his meltdowns to document the when, how, why etc... Of course, the problem is that we actually seldom take him out precisely because of the behaviours, so it seems we are going to have to take him out more often and distress him and us so that we can document his distress... Oh-hum.

 

The goods news is (yes, really!) that they didn't just toss the case out, which is I think what they intended to do in the first place, so here's hoping and waiting some more. :-( Who said it was ever easy, hey?

You have my utmost and heartfelt sympathy.

 

I cannot get any help re: AS.

 

I get lower mobility and diasability premium for IS for my agoraphobia.

 

NOTHING for AS, severe PTSD, severe IBS, arthritis, OCD, dyspraxia and dyslexia and a million and one other things :|

Well at least you're still in there fighting and they're still listening. A positive result would have been better but this is the the next best thing IMHO.

Genuine cases tend to have to 'jump through hoops', I know I did for the meagre £18 a week DLA for mobility :mad:

Time for an update.

 

Got a date for tribunal on December 3rd.

 

I kept a diary as requested and am about to send that in to add to the file. I have received a copy of T's medical records which, as expected, show nothing very useful, and just show that once we had him in a SEN school, they were quite happy to discharge him. Also received copy of the MDT at his school, suitably bland and neutral the way those reports usually are. My job will be to show the tribunal what lies between the cracks, the traffic light system put in place for example to deal with his behaviours, which shows the excesses for what they are and how difficult it is for the school to cope as well.

 

One thing the diary shows is how unpredictable his behaviour is, and how there is no pattern to when he goes in meltdown, and how neither the school nor us can see it coming at times. I hope that will help giving the tribunal a true picture. We will see.

Oh, clearly you're just bored and attempting to fill your otherwise empty days in the west wing of your DLA-funded mansion with a bit of frivolous litigation.... :p

 

I think I'll attempt to relieve the tedium by indulging in a long drive in the ole motability Roller now... :rolleyes:

 

All my fingers & toes crossed for you on the 3rd December, Bookworm.
