The study needs assessment is not a diagnostic or medical assessment. There are no tests or examinations.
The assessment is a conversation between you and the assessor, focusing on the difficulties you are experiencing or will encounter on your course because of your disability/ies.
Assessments usually take between one and two hours. The assessor may introduce you to a range of equipment. Any equipment discussed will be demonstrated for you and you will be offered the chance to try it for yourself. The assessor will discuss the possible recommendations with you and identify which are most appropriate to your needs in order to help you overcome the difficulties you are experiencing or will encounter.
I was really impressed. She was very nice and asked the right questions. People don't always do that.
