Re: Coronavirus update 27.01.21

Due to lockdown, all face-to-face assessments have had to be postponed. Once lockdown has finished and it is safe to assess again with measures in place, my work will resume. Appointments will first be offered to those whose assessments have had to be postponed and I will then be in contact with those who have been in contact more recently.  Therefore, for anyone making contact now, the assessment will likely be around 3-4 months after schools fully reopen and lockdown effectively ends. Please see the COVID measures page that explains what I've put in place. 

Please note that I'm still offering online assessments via Zoom for exam access arrangements for schools and colleges, and remote evaluation of need assessments for those currently at university wishing to apply for the Disabled Students' Allowance. This page will be updated if online evaluation of need assessments become an option for 2021 university starters.

Take care.
