Use the DLA claim form to apply for Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for children under 16. You can order a printed form by telephoning the Disability Living Allowance helpline. Contact the assessment centre straight away if you can’t make your appointment or if you’ve already missed it.
You have to have a good reason for them to rearrange it.
If you take someone with you to the assessment, their travel costs can also be paid back but only if they travel with you.
Ask the receptionist at the assessment centre how to do this.
