Hi my husband has just made a new claim for our daughter who has a lot of learning difficulties and has been diagnosed with DLD before school closed development learning disorder and she has dislexia and she has trouble processing things during learning and is currently seeing a speech therapist well she was when school was open she also has a one plan in school which means she works in smaller groups at school at a lower age level on English learning and maths to help her learn better as she’s not at the expected age of the class it’s taken 2 yrs to get the assessment done but we are very grateful for the school as now they are doing all they can to help my daughter during the schools being closed my self s as me my husband have decided to apply for DLA I was wondering if anyone knew if we would be eligible? We applied in March well they sent a text saykng they received the form 3rd March since then we have started paying for a private tutor online for an hr a wk for my daughter during this time of being of school and if she is awarded we will try and get her any support we can after also. To try and help her get back on track she is 10 so this time Of school is important at her age and she’s really struggling at home and not able to do the work set as it’s the work for everyone in the class the teacher has said that she will do a pack especially foe my daughter tho for her needs from Monday paper based which will be better for me and my husband to try n support our daughter my question was does anyone have any advice or havr a child with the same learning problems could you give me any advice on how to support her eith learning as she seems to be struggling and I don’t like to see her so upset and stressed cause she can’t do it without the support she’s use to in school and also do you know if this does qualify for DLA also what’s the time scale for a decision thank you
