I was doing some research and I discovered strat the DSA existed and that at Brighton where I am due to go next year you can get funding/benefits if you have disabilities like ADHD (which I have).

Some websites detail it briefly but I was interested to know if you could get money deducted from study fees or accommodation costs, as my family don’t currently have enough funds to send me although my parents have pretty average salaries.

Has anyone else with ADHD used the system? What did you get through it?

You'd only get money for accommodation costs if your accommodation needs are purely based off of your disability requirements, and even then SFE are weird about it. They're even more stringent about this nowadays than when I was in university.

My assessor said I should've had the accommodation difference covered due to my disability (I required on campus, ground floor, ensuite accommodation), SFE said no. My university helped instead via non-standard awards from their funds to support students with financial hardship for each year I studied there.

Your assessor will talk through your study needs with you, it will most likely be software, hardware, study mentor, and money back from non-core text books and printer consumables. This is dependent in you and your needs.
