View Full Version : Recognition for depended with special needs
Hey Ladies Just wondering if anyone has put an application into DCO for recognition of a dependent with special needs.
As the Married Quarter we live in is FULLY carpeted except for the obvious areas, laundry bathroom and Kitchen.
Our Daughter has Asthma and allergy to dustmites, I would really appreciate a house with ALOT LESS carpet and maybe one bedroom that is tiled... I know that pushing it a little.
And if we are knocked back on our application can we just ASK to move to a new home?
Thanks in advance
have your rung and asked yet what the deal is?
I have just spoken to about 10 people about it, and I have contacted my allergist and he will give me the paper work that should get us a new house with a whole lot less carpet. woo:smiliedance:
So that then goes to dco which then goes to DHA and then dha deals with it, I have spoken to dha about it and they seem pretty happy to help us.
So for future reference for anyone else, you need a specialist to give you a diagnosis which you put with your paperwork that DH or You if your the serving member will have to fill out called the App for recognition of a dependent with special needs. Which they can get off their web at work.
do you have any idea where the new house will be?
are you leaving us?? :crying:
I think you also have to do this each time you post.. like prior to your next posting, ie get another bit of paper from your specialist etc, do the forms and so on and apply for special needs so that once you are in your new locality, you can be helped more etc.
I was thinking of applying for special needs for my DS as he has a few learning issues .. that's only if tutoring wasn't to work out and so on but we'll see. I was told by REDLO if I were to apply then I do it prior to posting next.
2sweetgirls I knew a family about 5yrs ago who needed a house with no carpet. Took a bit of a fight to get but it did happen. I don't know the ins and outs of the process they went through but I don't think it was easy.
Hmm thats a little ludicrous, i think i may just have a million photo copy's.
There would not want to be a fight for it.... I will just tell them to stick it and we will go to a civvie rantal property and they can reinburse (sp).
Anyways I will let you all know how we go with the papers and getting a new home.
Sams mum: I hope its alot closer to the base simply because I am studying in the city, and OH HOW I HATE travelling.
For a condition such as yours 2sweetgirls, you wont have to apply for every posting as her allergies wont change. We have just recently applied and were approved for special needs housing as we need a home that is fully air conditioned as our DS1 cant get dehydrated by no means as he has underdeveloped kidneys...we have said it does not affect DH postings we will go anywhere but it needs to be airconditioned..they have said yep ok and in the case it isnt we buy one and they install and remove at every posting at there cost....
Good luck our house is completely tiled..no carpets..could make for an interesting winter....
oh thanks for that shauna...
We have the papers here but now i need to write a letter to the allergist to have him write a letter for dco and have in it what we need.
what papers did you provide for dco, about your sons kidney condition, did your specialist give you some sort of diagnosis and that you needed air con?
For my DS's case I would have to do it every posting I was told. I believe it's for any condition that can either improve or change over time.
At our last appt i asked him to write a letter stating he cant get dehydrated and that as a result in his opinion it would be beneficial to his health to live in aircon...
as for paperwork i have to ask hubby he did all that at work i just went to the interview with dco..
