Hi, I'm new to dsa I've just received my award but it mentions "non medical personal help" with sums of money calculated under the non medical personal help title. Do those payments go to my college advisor?

they would go to a support tutor or a mental health tutor, it should say which one somewhere on the supplier quotes

Thanks for the reply! No they haven't mentioned who it's going to that's why I asked on here as I have also emailed saas aswell but have had no reply yet. Have you had any experience on buying equipment recommended by saas? I have looked at dsa supplier prices and they're much more expensive than your average shop, do you know if there a reason for that?

have you got your needs assessment documents, they might have the supplier quotes towards the end of that. you don't buy it yourself, saas should give the supplier the money directly, assistive technology software is pricey and i think they add some of their admin costs onto it, although they will have an installation charge perhaps they'll charge to student finance also.

have they put a yearly or hourly rate down for the nmh, i expect it is the former.
for PG it is c. 23k a year max.
Now it means you can pick your own NMH person (a psychologist or counsellor) or go through a nmh provider (google them, theres a list) but its better you pick it yourself and nmh providers take half the rate hence.. you lucky! good for you

Any equipment provided as part of your DSA recommendations will include installation costs, insurance to cover the duration of your course and it will also include full after sales support. This is why the cost seems more expensive than a laptop you'd pick up at Curry's.
