Has anyone applied for DLA for a baby?


My 7 month old has numerous things going on and I've been told by a few professionals to clam for DLA. I've got the form but it so hard to answear the questions as most of the questions would be the same for any other baby. Now I'm wandering weather there's any pointing filling it in?

Hi I applied for my son when he was just under 6 month old. A specialist health visitor helped me but I'm sure cab will help or a child development centre if there's one near by x

All i will say is Appeal if you get rejected. MY sister was refused for my niece who has SB and hydrocephalus, she appealed and got the higher rate

The best advice I got was to go find a CAB or a money advice centre and get help to fill it out. We were told by the guy that we may be refused as my sons needs could be compared to a normal child of his age. We got accepted first time on middle rate.
