the forms are quite detailed. They dont give you much room to answer though. your son seems to have similar circumstance to mine did you go into a lot of descriptive deatail, as i was told it goes on the amount of care needed especially at night etc.

I didnt go into that much really , cause most 10 month baby will be up the night but because my son is double jointed and gets stuck in the rails of the bars . Just take your worst day and say about that , my son physio also filled in part of the form which helps loads with getting your claim , so ask someone dealing with your son to write in part of it . You just need to keep saying in the form that the age of your child and a child who has no problems , I cant leave me son on his own at all as he puts everything in his mouth and cos of his low tone in his mouth he gags as he doesnt no how to take it out , choked on a sock once and turned blue and he cant be left on his own , so say about your son gagging and that you's have to feed him everything and watch him more than what a an other child would

hey thanks everyone for this, i did see someone from the centre, but to be honest she did nothing and gave me no real help. Sorry were you meaning always say compared to a child his age yeah. I mean he got a specialist high chair for his eating as he has low tone in his abdomen, almost impossible to feed. My physio just wrote a supporting letter for us to send with it. i think maybe i am worried about trying to fit in what i have to say as there is no space really. did you bullet point or just use incidents to describe his condition. aah this is stressing me to be honest.

i mean we cant leave josh as he tries to pull himself onto wee step etc, he always falling over hitting his head as no balance and coordination, and cant crawl, walk sit properly, etc. also same he picks everything up.
