I have previously posted my concerns regarding the face to face assessment I was due to have under the title of 'frightened'. When I arrived at the assessment centre I was suspicious of the assessor because of what I had read but she was really nice. People are right when they say to get to the centre from the car is over 20 metres. My husband was allowed with me and he could contribute at any time she listened to both my husband and myself. She went through the form point by point I just confirmed what I had originally written. I did make a copy of the form before I posted it and read it through a few times. She asked me about what things I like to do in the day hobbies etc.She did a short examination of my legs strength wise. I took notes in with me for my benefit to ensure I had covered all the points I wanted to get across, which she was happy with. At the end of the assessment just as we were leaving she asked me how I got in and out of the car which I felt then she was trying to catch me out. I had no problem showing her.
I waited a few days rung the DWP asked for a copy of the report and I received it within a couple of days and I was happy with what she had written, the out come is I am to receive what I was expecting.
My advise would be: Answer the questions truthfully, take someone with you who knows all your disabilities, I took in a statement from my husband on his take on how my disability effects me on a day to day basis, take in notes to make sure you cover all the points you want to put across. Hope this post ishelpful to someone.
