DLA downgraded & Blue Badge lost - advice please
My son's DLA has just been reassessed and he has gone down to medium care, low mobility awards. We needed his DLA to justify his Blue Badge, which came up for reassessment at the same time.
I submitted a request for a mandatory reconsideration of the DLA award and a review of the Blue Badge decision. Both came back negative. Although Monkey Boy's needs are greater, if anything, than before.
Apparently a Blue Badge can't be awarded for mental health Issues as they judge that he is choosing not to walk, not unable to walk.
MB has sensory processing disorder, but all his other diagnoses are related to trauma, attachment difficulties, possible ASD, possible ADHD, etc.
Can anyone advise whether we can find grounds to fight this?
