That’s okay love! N’aww thank you, hope your application goes well :)
That’s alright! You fill out a form and send it off to the DSA people, with proof of your disability/learning difficulty (Like a letter from your GP) and then you’ll have an interview and assessment where they will work out what would best help you in university and what your condition entitles you to - this could range from mentoring sessions, dictaphones, people who take notes for you, extra time in exams, a laptop with specialised equipment installed (Like Dragon, Claroread, Inspiration) etc etc - I can’t speak for everyone as everyone is entitled to different things. I get DSA because I have Dsypraxia - this impacts my studies as I am very slow to take notes and my hand begins to hurt very quickly when I write things by hand - so DSA helped me by giving me a laptop with specialised software on it. My organisation skills and memory are also very poor because of my Dyspraxia so DSA paid for a mentor to help me out with organising my studies and keeping on top of things. I also have Dsycalculia - which is known colloquially as ‘Maths Dyslexia’, I struggle with things like basic arithmetic and abstract concepts such as space, weight and time - this impacts my studies massively as a big chunk of my degree is statistics based. DSA has helped me by paying for me to have one-on-one maths support every week, without this, I definitely think that I would’ve dropped out of university by now. DSA has helped me massively during my time at university and if you need the help, it is well worth applying for.
Please sign this, I know from personal experience how much the DSA helps me with aspects of university life - this is probably true for a lot of you in the UK.
