A study needs assessment is a confidential appointment with an assessor to discuss the effects of your disability on your studies. It's an opportunity to discuss options for support and where appropriate, equipment and software are recommended.
The aim is to identify any needs you may have in relation to your disability, and any additional costs that you may incur because of your disability.
After you have applied for DSA and your funding authority has written to you to say you are entitled to DSA, you will need to book a Study Needs Assessment. Contact Sheffield Regional Assessment Centre to make an appointment.
