A forty page document arrived in this post this week – our youngest son’s renewal form for his Disability Living Allowance (DLA). It is three years since I filled in the last application and even though this will be the third time I’ve completed it for him, it doesn’t get any easier. Each time, the form changes and requires several hours of work to fill it in. I won’t start it this week with it being half term, as I need peace and quiet so I can work my way through it. It is going to be a bumper size envelope that I return with copies of his Statement, SEND Support Plan, reports from his OT and Autism Advisory Teacher etc. It will be a relief once the form has been filled in and sent off and something else to tick off my huge to do list!
