Carers payment for Auditory processing disorder, Dyslexia and Global sensory disorder. Rss

Hi everyone.

My 8 yo dd has recently been diagnosed with APD, Dyslexia and Global sensory disorder.

She is quite behind at school (Approx 2 years) and also struggles with day to day life. The audiologist who did the APD testing and diagnosis said she was quite severe. She used the 8 year old testing and she is a month shy of turning 9 and failed 5 of the 6 tests.

What I was wondering is, has anyone successfully received carers allowance for these conditions?

TIA smile
I dont know if this will help but I get carers allowance for my ds who has a severe speech delay. Ctrlink told me more than likely I would not get it. But surprise surprise I did. So I would go for it. Whats the worst that can happen, they say no.




i had to call them today inregards to careers payment etc, We will be getting inregards to my neice, but i know there is a form that needs to be filled out and signed by a doctor, i can keep you posted once I receive our form and let you know if you like
