Having a note taker means you can concentrate on the lecture and not worry about missing things because you are writing. 

The Note-taker should write and produce notes in a way that is useful for you.  You will need to discuss this with them. 

If you cannot do this talk to a Study Adviser in the AAC who will explain to the note taker what they need to do. 

The note taker should get the notes to you within 48 hours; sooner if the timetable of lectures requires it.  On occasion the 48 hour limit might be exceeded.  It is important to let the note-taker know if this is going to create a problem for you.

If you do not like, or get on with, the people supporting you, ask for a change of personnel.  This does not mean you can dismiss people because you do not like the advice they give (it might be something you are doing/not doing and you are wrong).  

It does mean that if meeting them is unpleasant and/or they are not giving the help you need in the way that works for you, then they might not be the right person for you.  In this case, the change is reasonable although there may be a delay in finding another person to work with you.
