What happens before an assessment?
Once we have agreed a date and time you will be emailed a questionnaire to complete (parent or carer to compete in the case of children). You will need to print it out, fill out as much as you can, and bring it with you on the day of your assessment.
You or your child must provide proof of a recent eye test (within the last two years).
Parents / carers are also asked to bring copies of recent school reports and Individual Education Plans (IEPs) if you have them.
The questionnaire will ask questions about your early development, educational experiences, your strengths and weaknesses. Don’t worry if you cannot answer all the questions, that is quite normal.
If you are over 16 you will also be sent a form to fill out with details of examinations that you have taken.
If you are already studying it is helpful if you bring some marked work with you, or at least think about the comments that your lecturers have made about how you could improve.
