      Always knew my child had difficulties and suspected him to be autistic. I work with children with disabilities and knew all the signs. I put a claim in for dla for him when he was six because the extra care he needed was exhausting. At the time I did not have a diagnosis and was turned down even after an appeal. This year I had a formal diagnosis of asd for him and a new claim has been successful. I feel angry that all his problems and the care he has needed were the same as they were three years ago. This extra money has allowed me to reduce my hours at work so that I can pick my son up from school and spend more time with him which is already  helping with his behaviour
