Government to “modernise” the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA)

May 27, 2014 4:27 pm

The Guardian reported this week that the National Association of Disability Practitioners (NADP) has raised concern that many universities will be unable to support students with disabilities following the announcement earlier this month that the Government intends to “modernise” the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) given to students with disabilities to help meet extra study costs incurred because of their disabilities. From September 2015 the Government will only pay for support for students with specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, if their needs are “complex”; the definition of this remains unclear, and the NADP is worried that only students defined as disabled under the Equalities Act will be eligible.
