As part of Cerebra’s programme of information workshops we have developed a Disability Living Allowance workshop for professionals. This is a full-day event (10am -4pm) and aims to give good basic information about DLA, as well as looking in more detail at the two components and how they are awarded.
The bulk of the workshop is spent giving attendees the skills, in conjunction with Cerebra’s DLA Guide, to be able to help parents to complete the claim for, and case studies are used to re-inforce learning. Finally, we look at how to ask for re-assessment of DLA and how to challenge decisions, as well as a very brief look at related benefits.
Our extremely popular DLA Guide goes through each question on the DLA form, giving explanations of what they mean and tips on how to answer them. It also gives advice about how to appeal if you’re unhappy with the decision.
