Thank you so much a very informative couple of hours. I am in my final year and wish I had applied for support two years ago! It is worth all the form filling believe me. The assessor had researched my disability before my appointment which I was very impressed with and she made me feel very much at ease.

I was anxious about meeting someone new who I thought may judge me. However, I was put at ease straight away their calm approach and the way they discussed everything in detail so I understood everything. Their knowledge on software was fantastic. I wasn't aware there was software to help me which I know will be of benefit to me. Thank you

The assessor made the assessment feel very relaxed, and went through the assessment at steady pace explaining every aspect. They were I have just had my study needs assessment with an assessor from Broadbent & Co. I was a little apprehensive about the appointment because I didn’t really know what to expect but the needs assessor was so kind and friendly and really put me at ease. The assessor thoroughly worked through my history, checking all the relevant details and then made so many recommendations. They recommended equipment and software that I didn’t even know existed that will make my life at university so much easier. I am amazed at how much help I will receive and can’t wait to start university now. Many thanks to Broadbent & Co.engaging and understanding to my needs which helped with the assessment.

Thank you all so much for my DSA allowance. I was amazed at how much help I will get and I am very very grateful. It will make my studies - and my life - much much easier. I will be getting software and gadgets that I never knew existed so I would never have had them if it weren't for the help of the DSA assessor. I am hoping that after I graduate I can work at home via the internet, so all the things I will get from the DSA will help me for years to come.

I dreaded my DSA interview as my physical and psychological problems include fatigue and communication fears, but the interview and the report were brilliant :-) and I am SO SO grateful to my Needs Assessor, from Broadbent & Co.. They were incredibly understanding and helpful ; because they were so well informed about medical and mental health matters, and how they might affect studying at Uni, they were able to help me through all the questions and they wrote a long, very accurate and detailed account. They made recommendations for equipment that helped me enormously - and will help me for years to come. Everyone involved in my assessment and those who provided and delivered the equipment were really friendly and understanding. The equipment was very high standard. I’m SO glad I was persuaded to apply for a DSA - do it!!! it will change your life for the better and you will get an amazing level of support. I had never had so much help before and feeling understood and supported made a HUGE difference to me, and to my family and friends. A massive THANK YOU to all involved in the DSA.
