If you qualify for Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs) you will require a Needs Assessment which AbilityNet can provide at our Brighton DSA centre.
Our experienced team will conduct an assessment with you to identify the specialist support you may require.
Phone: 01926 464 095
You will not be personally charged for this assessment. Our fee is paid for by your funding body and the fee charged by this centre for a Needs Assessment is £598.80 (£499.00 + VAT).
Our fee is inclusive of all work required for the duration of your study. If you take a break from studying, start a new course or provide medical evidence to your funding body of an additional disability you may be entitled to a Needs Assessment Review.

"Adam [the assessor] was friendly and efficient. He demonstrated a good understanding of my needs." - Zoe C.
"The assessment process felt quite relaxed. The assessor was very friendly and explained things in a way that I could understand i.e did not use jargon. He went through everything he had written in the report and made sure that I was happy with it all. I would definitely use AbilityNet again. - Lucy K.
