DLA claim for child subject to immigration control where parent has ILR

I am becoming quite confused around the topic having read too many articles.  Can anyone provide more guidance please.  Child in question has Downs and signficant Learning Difficulties so meets criteria for DLA.  She came from Ghana to join parents.  Father is Canadian and has been granted ILR.  I am not clear whether there is a ‘no recourse to public funds’ condition for child.  DLA has been refused on the basis that she is a PSIC.  However, there seems to be a lot of contradiction around this area and I do not want to forego the chance to appeal if there is any prospect of successful.  Any advice much appreciated.
