If you provide enough supporting evidence, the DWP will consider a paper-based review of your claim. This means your child will not have to meet in person with one of the assessment provider’s health professionals.
To be considered for a paper-based review, you must prove that your child has 1 of the following:
a high level of impairment and cannot perform most or all of the activities in the PIP claim form safely, reliably and repeatedly
a record of hospital admission and is under GP care
a condition such as autism or learning difficulty that will make a face-to-face consultation stressful
a severe condition, such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, dementia, Parkinson’s disease or stroke
