Information on the Disabled Sudents' Allowances from GOV.UK www.gov.uk/disabled-students-allowances-dsas

Once your eligibility for DSA is confirmed, Student Finance England may ask you to contact an assessment centre to work out what help you need.  This is known as a needs assessment. Don’t book this until Student Finance England asks you to.  The assessment is paid for through any DSA entitlement you may have.

A Study Needs Assessment is an informal meeting between a student and an experienced study needs assessor. This will help identify what support the student requires based on their individual needs.  A Study Needs Assessment is required if the student has applied, and been considered eligible, for Disabled Students’ Allowances.
