Contact (formerly Contact a Family) are running a Facebook Live session on higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for children with learning disabilities or autism spectrum disorders.
Most children who get the higher rate of the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) qualify on the basis that physical problems severely restrict their ability to walk. However, even if your child has no physical problems with walking, they might still qualify for this DLA component if their behaviour is very difficult to deal with. This most usually applies to children with a learning disability or autism spectrum disorder.
Their next Facebook Q&A will focus on just this – claiming the higher rate of the DLA mobility component for children with learning disabilities or autism spectrum disorders. If you want to know more about this important benefit, ther Family Finance advisers will be on hand to answer any questions you have on our Facebook page on Thursday 28 May between 2-4 pm.
