About this course
Disability living allowance (DLA) is the main way of meeting the additional needs of many children, yet it is under-claimed and can be hard to understand. This course, delivered online over two consecutive mornings, looks at the DLA rules as they apply to children. It considers how to fill in the form to get the best outcome for the child.
The course covers:
- The extra care needs a child requires to qualify for DLA
- Basic milestones in childhood development
- The impact of stays in residential schools, care homes and hospitals
- How an award of DLA for a child can increase benefits for the family
