The Assessor will write a report based on the information you discussed and the documentation you provided for your assessment, along with other relevant information from your Tutors or your University/ College. All recommendations need to be clearly justified based on your disability-related needs for the course to enable your Funding Body to release funding from the Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) or other funding sources.
The report, based on your needs, will suggest strategies which you can use during your studies and will recommend the type of assistance you require from the DSAs.
Recommendations usually include the following:
- Details of costs and suppliers of specialist equipment
- Maximum weekly hours and suggested rates of pay for any personal assistance (non-medical helper) you need
- Details of any reasonable claims for additional miscellaneous or travel costs you might have while studying.
