I have heard that I may be able to get a benefit because my child has ADHD and is taking Concerta X.
Am I right and who would I contact to find out?
Your child may be eligible for the Disability Living Allowance (DLA). Contact have an excellent telephone helpline 0808 808 3555 and they can advise on benefits.
Your local Citizens Advice will also be able to offer advice.
Cerebra produce a brilliant step by step Guide to claiming Disability Living Allowance to help you fill in the form. This can be downloaded from their website.
If your child receives DLA at the middle or higher rate you will then be able to claim a Carers Allowance.
Hope it all goes well for you.
