Highly Recommend
I really recommend this company, from the day talking to them they were so helpful and accommodating, they understood I needed a face 2 face appointment and helped to make that happen. At the assessment, I felt really nervous but Daniel was extremely helpful and really took the time to listen to my family, could have not asked for anything better! The report came quickly as well so I will defo be recommending this organisation!

DSA face to face with Daniel Tue 18 May 21
Thank you Daniel of DSA who assessed my son Harry Goad for his support needs.
Daniel mentioned this face to face was unusual as it's mostly been remote assessments. So it was nice to have this experience.
As Harry's Mum I liked the way Daniel treated Harry as he is 18 so his conversation was always directed at Harry. Daniel allowed the parents to contribute where we felt it was necessary. Daniel asked important questions in a way Harry understood and put him at ease. Very impressed

The assessment team have been very helpful. They were able to identify the best of ways to support me in relation to my disability and recommend things that would benefit me in the best possible ways and also in the long run.

Amazing
Great help to me. I went years and years avoiding every dyslexic test because I was scared of the results which was ridiculous. Finding the results and that I need help has helped me emensly at uni. And Neil was a great instructor on teaching us about the equipment.

I wanted to review Harry Charalambous as part of my Needs Assessment on Friday 16th April. I cannot recommend him highly enough for the quality of service, care, clarity, reassurance, knowledge, professionalism and kindness shown to me throughout. I was nervous about the assessment and he put me at ease from the start, explaining the process so clearly, practising great active listening skills and summarising my thoughts and words so aptly. I was blown away by the support offered - Thank you!

The access 1st team were really helpful in organising my needs assessment and answering all my questions - I really appreciated being able to have someone explain it to me on the phone beforehand. Christalla was very kind and helped me feel comfortable and understand everything throughout the appointment. A great service thank you!

Access first have been very helpful. They complete a thorough and detail assessment of my needs which have help me to understand my needs and continue with studying on my course. It has been very difficult studying this year and without the support provided, I would have been unable to continue studying. Access first have provided me with tools to aid my day to day learning and living and I very grateful for their help.
Thank you to Markella and the team.

Great conversation !!!
I was actually quite stressed ahead of this call as I did not know what to expect, however, thanks to Christalla, it was a very pleasant and helpful conversation.
It was lovely speaking with Christalla ! as she explained the process very well, and based on the needs and requirements, she was also able to advise on various aspects, including softwares and apps.

DSA Assessment
I am very thankful to receive the assistance that was offered to me by Christalla who was very patient and supportive during this time.
The service has given me confidence and a greater willingness to get back into study with a service that aims to support as much as possible.
Raising my awareness that I learn in a different way that wasn’t addressed in earlier years of education and enabling me to see that I can still enjoy education when offered the right tools to support my journey.
