Sorry, just seeing this now, Melly. I’ve seen that, thought it was very helpful. I printed it out and gave the printout to M to give to his boss’s wife, who just said everyone was different and handed the printout back to him. On several occasions M has felt under pressure to get all his work done a...
I usually put this job off until the last minute and then ring up and speak to a nice person who asks some questions and then tells me M’s tax credits are now renewed. This year I managed to get going with it yesterday, but no nice person to talk to, just a woman’s voice. I did try the online option...
Thanks for the suggestion about downloading the form, Melly. I decided against in the end as I had most of the form completed and it would have entailed more time to complete an electronic version as well. I have some rough notes and might download the form as well and fill in what I can, just to ha...
Chris, I know it's not as bad as some forms, esp. the PIP form, but sill bad enough! Thanks Melly, I'll have a look at that. I'm up late because I have been trying to get it filled in. I'm afraid I left it rather long to get it dealt with - it has to be in for Monday. I'm hoping I get a break before...
Anyone else in the process of filling in one of these? I'm currently filling one in for A, who is finding it stressful on account of her anxiety. There were some questions we didn't quite understand and I had intended to ring up the ESA about them, but the day has been very busy. There'll be another...
She wanted to see him in action. She made the arrangement with M's employers and I don't know if she said anything to them about the 30 minute limit, but now they're telling him to ask the support worker to go to her meeting first, then come and watch him when she has more time.

M's employment support worker is planning to come and watch him at work, but only for half an hour as she will have a meeting to go to afterwards. It doesn't seem like a long time to me

Thanks for all your replies. The general consensus seems to be that members of the household should contribute to the costs of running the household. My son contributes a fixed amount of cash once a week, which doesn't go very far, but I am very grateful for it. It was he who was told that he should...
This seems to have been going on for a long time. No wonder you're so tired and depressed with it all. People on the autistic spectrum tend to slip between the various services and don't get the help they need. I see from one of your earlier posts that CAHMS turned you down because your son's proble...
What do people here think about family members contributing money towards housekeeping? My son contributes and he has been told he shouldn't be expected to do so.
