We recommend Contact, a charity who work with families with disabled children across the UK. They have a lot of detailed information and may be able to put you in touch with a local helpline to assist with an application.

If you have a disabled child (even if you are still waiting for a diagnosis) you may be eligible to claim Disability Living Allowance (DLA). Contact have created 3 short films that talk you through what DLA is and how to apply.
