Attending PIP & ESA assessments

Jane Owen-Pam



We are often asked for advice from relatives / carers / support workers etc who are attending a PIP or ESA assessment with an autistic adult.

We always recommend that the person providing support makes sure that they listen out for any points where the person maybe hasn’t given enough detail or has missed the subtext or misunderstood how their answer might be interpreted, so that they can add more detail where necessary.

Does anyone have any tips for or thoughts about attending these assessments?

Many thanks
