The Personal Independence Payment (PIP) Assessment Guide makes clear that the list of health conditions requiring additional support only provides examples of conditions that may mean the claimant could struggle to engage with the claims process, but is not exhaustive.

More information can be found in Part 1, section 1.12, of the PIP Assessment Guide: Personal Independence Payment (PIP) assessment guide for assessment providers - GOV.UK
