DSA Assessment £440

 

Disabled Students' Allowances provide extra financial help if you have a disability or a specific learning difficulty like Dyslexia. They are paid on top of the standard student finance package and don't have to be repaid.
In order to apply for the Disabled Students' Allowance evidence of the disability must be provided. In the case of Dyslexia, this would be a current up to date Dyslexia Assessment conducted by an Educational Psychologist or Specialist Teacher holding a current Practising Certificate.

Details about the Disabled Student's Allowance can be found here:

DSA Assessment

 

A DSA Assessment for students entering Higher Education consists of a full range of tests to assess underlying ability, attainment in spelling, writing, reading and numeracy and a range of underpinning tests to assess working memory, speed of processing and phonological awareness. The assessment takes around three hours and the fee includes a detailed report written to SASC standards

( http://www.sasc.org.uk) by an assessor who holds a current Practising Certificate. 
 

  If dyslexia is not diagnosed or a report is not required the client has the option to decline the report and no further fee is due.


The assessment can be conducted at our offices or at the client's home. Assessments conducted at a client's home incur an additional fee, depending on location.

Cost of DSA assessments

All our Specialist Assessor's hold a current Practising Certificate and are qualified to diagnose Dyslexia and make recommendations for DSA support. 
The cost of DSA assessments are detailed below:
DSA assessment at dittas office ( Croydon or Orpington)  £440  

DSA assessment at client's home £460- £475
