How could this affect me?

If you have applied for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), the Study Needs Assessment is an essential part of the process. Recommendations will vary from person to person, depending on your course, how your autism affects you and the impact on your studies.

During the assessment, you will have the opportunity to ask questions or suggest strategies or equipment that you feel you may benefit from, or which have worked for you in the past.

All recommendations must be considered in relation to the DSA regulations and guidance.

For more information on what to expect during the assessment please visit What is the Study Needs Assessment?
