I have a friend who is dyslexic and was wondering if it could be classed as a learning difficulty. She is 50 and was turned down for DLA last month even though she has arteritis in her knees and had a heart attack last September also she is diabetic and asthmatic. What would her chances be if she repealed. She is feeling low at the moment as she feels she deserves the money. Before you slate her she was born and bred in London and not an immigrant or asylum seeker. genuine answers only please as she needs to know.
