I posted a while ago about having the Atos Training file but I couldn't remember where I had put it on my computor lol. Here is the link for it dwp.gov.uk/docs/wca-handboo...
I used this in my assessment and I have DLA HRM/MRC and I am in the support group for ESA. It is not a question of lying or acting its a question of realising what the questions actually mean and why they are asking them.
I know its a lot to read and most of us don't really have the attention span, I was lucky my carer read bits of it and I read the rest. I think it is vitally important that any of us going for a medical, or appealing aginst a decision should read this or have someone read it with you.
It truly shows how sneaky all these 'innocent' sounding questions really are.
If this helps just one person get through this nightmare I will be a happy lady.
Gentle hugs to all and good luck
