What happens after an assessment?
After the assessment you will be emailed email a report as an electronic document. This is suitable for most purposes although a paper copy will be sent if you specifically request it. If your report is to be used to make an application for Disabled Students’ Allowance it will be in the format required for that application.
You will usually receive your report within a week (exceptions might be Christmas, public holidays, etc.)
When you have received your report you are welcome to make an arrangement to discuss anything that you do not understand or are unsure about.
Your report will contain your personal information such as address, date of birth etc.
If your report is related to an application for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) a summary will come next.
Then there will be a section about you: your background, what you see as your strengths and weaknesses and your attitude to tasks such as reading and writing, etc.
The report is then divided into sections that cover reading, writing and spelling, underlying ability and so on.
Then there will be a conclusion. This sets out your diagnosis and how it has been arrived at.
Following that there will be a series of recommendations. These will cover arrangements for examinations, the type of support that you need based upon your reason for assessment, targets for Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for under 16s and other recommendations aimed personally for your circumstances.
The report then finishes with a table of your achievements on the tasks that you undertook together with an explanation of those tasks appropriately referenced.
