Sorry, i didn't know it had been listed before. I will definitely make the most of it when i get mine! My little boy has ASD & when he goes to the cinema it's about the only time he'll sit still :lol:

b) Be a registered blind person.



:?

Why do you say "child"? Isn't this for anyone, child or adult, who's in receipt of DLA or registered blind? The site isn't working right now, but when it is I'll check it out. Thanks



It was posted a while ago, definitely time it was back! Glad it will be useful for you

Some cinemas offer headsets which describe set and action and stuff. Means they dont miss out.



Didnt notice that, yes its for anyone, no age limit. I am 20 and have just got one.

I agree, but £5.50 to go to the cinema free for 3 years isn't too bad :whistling:

I got mine nearly a year ago used to go every month but havent gone since i got the card typical!

Did you also know that on presentation of you DLA qualifying letter you can get into Dudley Zoo at a reduced rate. If you use it at Alton Towers or Drayton Manor you can get wrist bands that mean that you don't have to queue to go on a ride (usually they let the whole family on) and also get a reduced rate, pay for kids, carer goes free. I keep forgetting to send off for the cinema pass, don't really go very often.

If you live in Birmingham, all children under the age of 16 can go swimming free - just apply for the pass and have the kids photos taken (free of charge).

Just got the form,never heard of this before,have an 11 yr old with aspergers and have no idea what we can get,thanks

I have been using mine for 4 years now (on my 2nd card) and its brill. Basically two of you go for half price. I use it at least once a week - so save over £400 a year! Not bad for £5.50. Oh by the way, it took me ages to work out why theres a small cut out piece on the side of the card - thats so blind or partially sighted people can feel it in their purse/wallet.

This sounds interesting, I get DLA and incapacity benefit and am partially sighted and never hear about things like this...Yet I'm always hearing about some lucky sod you "got a free car" and all the rest of it...

Does anyone know of any site that has a list of stuff like this that we may be entitled to due to receiving DLA\etc....?

Many thanks

is this not like myvue gift card 241 but this one can be used only at myvue and people who need a carer better of getting this one as you can use it any movie nearly. good post

Disabled drivers can get a pass for the birmingham toll road. The pass is £15 and lasts 3 years. The problem is if you change your car in between those three years it's another £15. The toll can be as high as £4.50 each way so it wouldn't take long to get your money back.

You need to meet their criteria, have a look on their website

Great, should help my mum afford to be able to take my autistic brother to the cinema more often.

Thanks very much

i remember posting about this over a year ago, fantastic card and should be rated hot hot hot once again so everyone gets to see it!!

Rep left,thanks.

When you get your disability benefit you should have received some information about Motability. You can phone them on 0845 456 4566 or look at their website [URL="www.motability.co.uk"]www.motability.co.uk[/URL]

By the way, you don't get a "free" car.... you lease it and pay for it using your disability allowance. It's still a good deal, no worries about car maintenance. If you cant drive you can lease an electric wheelchair, etc.

I agree

I've got my £5.50 over again and again - and with a new cinema being built in our town I can see us even more use out of it (instead of having to travel 20 miles).

I know, these things aren't really that well known. I was given an email address and phone number the other day to find out everything that you are entitled to as many people with ASD & Aspergers aren't receiving all they should. I haven't phoned yet but when i get a quiet half an hour and my home phone batteries are not deadi will give them a call:thumbsup:
Here's the email address [email protected]

direct.gov.uk/en/…htm

this website has lots of info

I've got one of these cards for myself but have never used it.. My son, who is 9, would go with me but can anyone confirm that he would count as my carer, He does help me/keep an eye on me (bless him). I would just be so embarrassed if they said he was too young and I had to explain my medical problems to cinema staff.

If he has a list of your meds and details of your condition then they should acceept it

Thanks. Shall be sending off my form asap.

going a bit off topic legoland lets one carer in free with proof eg gp letter saying child disabled & needs extra help also get hand stamped and don't have to que and can go through exits to the rides my child has aspergers

But don't you think discrimination against parents that DON'T have disabled children to be out of order? Look at it realistically, ANY child would need a guardian if they visited legoland so whether they are disabled or not is completely irrelevant. Makes no sense to me whatsoever, one rule for one etc....:thinking:

yes you do.

If you receive higher rate mobility DLA, then it covers the cost of most cars entirely.

So free. You don't paya penny. The DLA is used to pay for it.

brilliant. My friend's son has mild autism, I'm sure the government will give him some money etc. I will let him know

My son's got aspergers, hubby too.

Another freebie is show your badge on either severn bridge and you don't have to pay the £5.30 crossing fee. The downside is you do have to go to Wales. (btw I live in Cardiff, so only joking before I get bashed!)

My 4 year old has autism & my 6 year old is just about to go under assessment. At Disneyland Paris if you take a letter of diagnosis you can get a pass at both parks that entitles the whole of your party to go through the exit to get on the rides instead of facing the long queues. It was a lifesaver at Xmas when we went as there is no way my 4 year old would have been able to cope with all the pushing & shoving and the long queueing times!:thumbsup:

My daughter, has been my carer for 4 years - shes 15 now and no-one has ever questioned her or me at the cinema - all I say is 'one adult and one carer, please' - no probs!
