    Hi @Wonderboy - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. As the spiceman says, it will just be answering queries, as if you were appearing in person. The questions will be to understand the difficulties you have in any problematic aspects of daily living & mobility. Give a couple of examples for each aspect that is difficult functionally, so they get a picture of exactly how your disability affects you as this was at the time of your assessment. Take your time, & ask them to repeat any questions if you don't understand. Don't waste time mentioning any 'inaccuracies' in your assessment report, concentrate on getting across your functional difficulties.
    Good luck, & please let us know how you get on. :)
