Our Son is 14. He was born very premature and now has Gross and Fine Motor problems.
He is not Dyspraxic but has " Dyspraxic Tendancies". Everyone said he would catch up by the time he got to high school but it has not happened.
Anyway, my wife has to be there for him morning and after school and this is preventing her from getting a job. She had always planned to go back to work when he was old enough.
So.... Does anyone know of any benefits we can claim to compensate for her not being able to work.
Someone suggested DLA but to be honest he is not that bad as far as disabilities go.

I would suggest you send off for the DLA form it may surprise you that you do a lot more for your son than you realise. Don't be put off by the long form.Your wife maybe able to claim carers allowance. It cetainly is worth looking into.
Let me know how you get on.

We applied for DLA and surprise, we have been told yes. So now we will be getting some money each month which will allow us to treat Ryan and do things we wouldn't normally be able to afford.
As Kathy says, don't be put off by the long form. it is worth the time and effort. Basketball

Thats great news. Smile Many people are put off by the form granted they look complicated and do take time to fill in, but please do not be put off by this. If a child has greater difficulties and needs more support than other children their own age it is worth persuing.
Well done. Kathy. Smile Smile
