I'm afraid we don't track conditions.

The most import areas will be Communicating and Mixing with Other People but you should also think about a general need for supervision an example of this would be needing someone with you when bathing in case there is a fire because you would not be able to hear the alarm, have a look at the following and then the relevant section in the PIP Claim guide.

All you can do is explain the difficulties that you have but try and put them in the context of your actually being able to follow a route, so things like not hearing if a service has been changed or knowing when to get off on an unfamiliar journey.

Contact the DWP office dealing with your claim, contact information will be on any letter that you have received about it. I would leave it until Tuesday to make sure that the DWP have received the report.

Morning gordon ,

He never asked me the questions i was expecting and prepared for is it possible to write explaining further evidence to the dwp decision maker , i have rang for report but they havnt received has yet still, imagine theres a small time frame( window) for this?
Or should i sit and await outcome first.
