Not attending an assessment
I hope someone can help me, My son who is autistic and has mental health issues, and a serious heart condition is being moved from DLA to pip, My son can be aggressive in situations he has no control over, I filled in the forms sent them off explaining the difficulties i would have bringing him to an assessment, I rang and asked if they would do a home visit as I knew he was not going to make a face to face, and he did not he had a meltdown before we were due to leave. I have had a letter asking why he missed the assessment and if i don't give them a good enough reason for missing his appointment they will disallow his claim, I don't know what to write, these people do not see the stress it places me in. Can someone advise me. Thank you.
