    How would you not be able to answer questions on your own work? Even with my memory issues I manage as you spend so long on an assignment it is impossible not to remember unless you have a more severe issue that also effects your long term memory as well as short.

    Did you support worker actually write your assignment for you? How much input did you give? A support worker usually wouldn't help so much that the whole assignment was pretty much their work.
    A support worker is there to support, rather than help, so shouldn't contribute to the essay at all (ie. even be responsible for writing one or two sentences). A support worker is only there to manage anxiety when it comes to assignments, help with planning and structuring an essay, as well as proofreading. Plus finding resources in the library if necessary. They shouldn't actually contribute to the academic work or suggest things to be put in.

    Yes, you put it into better words than me.
