DSA Needs Assessment

If you qualify for Disabled Students’ Allowance you will need to have a DSA Needs Assessment to decide on the support you will need on your course.

It would be beneficial for you to book a DSA Needs Assessment as soon as possible to ensure that you get the support you need.

Contact Needs Assessment Centre

You will have to contact an Accredited DSA Needs Assessment Centre to arrange a DSA Needs Assessment.

You may wish to let a Disability Adviser know who you are contacting.

Attend Needs Assessment

The DSA Needs Assessment is an informal meeting with an experienced Needs Assessor to help to decide the kind of support that will help you with your own particular needs.

Needs Assessment Report

Your Needs Assessor will write a Needs Assessment Report which will list and justify any recommended Assistive Technology and Specialist Support you will need, how much it will cost, where to get it from, and any Specialist Training you may need to make best use of the Assistive Technology.
