What about the metatarsus adductus?
I understand that this can correct itself but what stage are you at with this?
You mention its hard for your son to walk?
This should be enough if its causing issues?
And as for the undiagnosed aspergers again as Corinne said DLA is not based on a diagnosis but the care needs.

I have to agree with the others here, DLA isnt based on a diagnosis.
My son hasnt yet been given a diagnosis and we currently get Higher Rate DLA. So my advice would be to apply for DLA now if your child needs more help with care needs than a child the same age.
And as Daniel said, if ur child finds it difficult to walk far then i guess you should be entitled to the blue badge too! x
