Sessions could include:
Evidence of your assessment of autism and an agreement for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) funding from Student Finance England.
DSA provides financial help for individuals wanting to study a higher education course who have a disability, ongoing health condition, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty. The amount you can get isn't affected by your household income and does not have to be repaid. DSA is best organised prior to starting your course as applying later could delay your support. Information about how to apply can be found on www.direct.gov.uk in their education section, or you can contact your University for more information.
This is an opportunity to meet up with you to explain more about our support and identify if it is suitable for your needs. During this meeting we can discuss any concerns and areas of support which you feel you may need. This will enable us to prepare for your future sessions so that we can meet your individual requirements. We would need to have evidence of your DSA agreement by this time and it would also be useful to bring your student timetable if you have one so that we can plan and discuss delivering your support in the future.
