ATOS Assessor: “Down’s Syndrome Isn’t Going To Go Away”

Same Difference

Spotted on Facebook. Shared because while it is rare to find a benefits assessor with such a personality, it’s good to know that it is possible.

A recent post from a Downs Syndrome forum:
“Yes, A (aged 17) was called for an interview with Atos. Contrary to everything I’ve heard, the lady conducting the interview was very nice, switched on and helpful. The first thing she said was “I have no idea why you’ve been called in!” She said the application had all the information they needed and after all “Down’s Syndrome wasn’t going to go away”. She really seemed to understand about what having a learning disability means and said her recommendation would be enhanced rate for both care and mobility, although she didn’t make the decision.”
