I had previously had an assessment a few years ago but this was carried out on the telephone (not very successfully!) and so I was apprehensive about having to attend a centre for a full assessment. I didn’t even think there was anything I could be helped with anyone but it was a requirement of SFE.
I could not have been more mistaken! From the moment I got there, I felt reassured and my assessor went out of their way to spend time with me to work out needs I didn’t even realise I could get help with! I just talked about my studying on a daily basis and the way in which my ill-health and disabilities impacted on this -together we were able to come up with some ideas that have really helped me.
The equipment and other services that I have now received have quite literally transformed my studying abilities and I could not be more grateful. The assessment centre was very pleasant and the assessor was fantastic. I was able to ask questions and was provided with plenty of opportunities to discuss options. It was an extremely positive experience and I am so glad that my assessment was carried out by both Broadbent and that particular assessor!
