    I would surmise that she would be typing out what her opinion is and what she is observing as opposed to the answers that you had given.
    So much emphasis is placed on the assessors opinion and certainly her observations.Β 
    In my assessment I was asked very few questions it was more like wanting me to agree with her opinion and thought process. She certainly did not take anything for granted on what I had put on the form or indeed what the independent evidence said. In one instance and despite making it clear on the form and attaching the hospital audio assessment that ended up with me being prescribed two hearing aids she came up behind me to check that I had the hearing aids in place!

    You can but wait I'm afraid, to see what the result is. Β

    @ fks1971, hello and welcome, now you have had your assessment you can leave it a week then contact DWP and request a copy of your assessment report and on receiving it you can workout what you're award may should be but you still have to wait for the official award confirmation letter which can take up to 8 weeks.Β

    Thanks so much for sharing your experience @fks1971, it's really useful everyone to be able to read first hand accounts of assessments. Best of luck with the decision and I hope you're not waiting too long.
