    I'm going back to college after 3 years to study AAT Level 4 and wanted to know what help I could get through DSA?

    I have OCD, ADHD, Dyslexia and undiagnosed ongoing back pain. Everytime I'm asked what help I need I'm unsure what to say as I'm unsure what can be offered. I receive PIP enhanced for both components and I'm in the ESA support group.

    Any advice on what assistance DSA could offer, how it's paid, evidence needed etc would be much appreciated

    DSA will only pay for costs you have as a disabled student and not everyday disability costs. For example, you may get things like a note taker, some software and exam concessions, such as extra time. It would not pay for things like prescriptions.

    You need to check first that your course is designated for DSA funding. If it's not, you will need to speak to your college to see what help they can offer.
