Using a support worker
It may be that, when your requirements are assessed, it is suggested that you are entitled to access a support worker/assistant during your research programme. If, for example, you are working in a laboratory, but would find particular aspects of practical work inaccessible, then a support worker might be a way of making those activities accessible.
University support worker services vary in the way they administer the service. Support workers may be researchers and have the subject knowledge you need from an assistant.
