Hi everyone and thanks so much for your input,
The envelope arrived and we couldn't quite believe it but she was successful, on the day she had been so distressed but tried to explain just some of the difficulties she faces in a day, and how so many others take even thinking for granted. We are so proud of her as it was an arduous task for her but she's a real fighter even though she feels weak.

Award stands until 2018, and now we are lodging a complaint against the assessor to attempt to ensure she does not oversee people with aspergers and ASD spectrum conditions again if at all possible. The disability advisors have advised us to take this step considering how the assessment and report were handled.total inconsistency and lies again on their part.

It sadly appears those of us that have a disability who attempt to make a real hard go at living a typically developed life are penalised, we have always raised the children to strive regardless of adversities they face each day and this clearly was the crux of this long 9months. As yet we are waiting to see if they will appeal but the most important thing for us was clearing our name and proving we did not lie like they said we did, and if nothing else we did that.

The tribunal paperwork states that due to the information collected on the day, in conjunction with the extensive amount of supporting evidence and her autism reports the appeal was upheld.

Good luck to everyone of you fighting for justice for your cases, I wish you every success we will await the dwps next correspondance and see if they want to appeal.

Hi J,

Congratulations on your daughters PIP awards at appeal !! :)

Thanks for letting us know ! :)
