DSA Assessments (Disabled Students Allowance)
Students moving onto University or Higher Education will need a post-16 diagnostic report. With this report the University Student Support Department will direct the student to a Needs Assessor who will make recommendations as to the kind of support that the student could receive at University eg ICT aids, extra time, additional support sessions, a Mentor etc.
