Disability living allowance (DLA) is the main way of meeting the additional needs of many children yet it is under claimed and hard to understand.

This course covers:
- What extra care needs must a child have to qualify for DLA
- The main caselaw on DLA for children
- Basic milestones in childhood development
- The impact of stays in residential schools, care homes and hospitals
