There can be an air of unease around assessments because they’re often quite formal and serious. My assessment with Broadbent and Co. was very relaxed.
I’d never had any assistance with a learning difficulty before so I was a little worried about appearing stupid or, alternatively, seeming like I didn’t need the support I was to receive.
The assessment was a lot more cooperative then what I expected. My assessor suggested some software or hardware that could help me with X, Y and Z issue I have with my learning and I was free to give input on whether or not I felt that would be useful.
It was nice to not feel patronised for the areas in which I struggle and get useful and relevant support for it.
