  • Applying for funding through the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA)
  • Arranging DSA assessments of need
  • Special arrangements in examinations
  • Accessing loaned equipment (e.g. digital recorders)
  • Specialist one-to-one "study skills" tuition
  • Providing educational support workers (e.g. note-takers, readers, library assistants)
