Needs assessment


 This video [5:00] gives an overview of the process of having a Needs Assessment.

If you are a home student, you will probably be eligible for Disabled Student's Allowance (DSA).  To access DSA funding, you will need to have a Needs Assessment.  For an overview of this process see Money Matters.

The purpose of a Needs Assessment is to identify what equipment, software or study support will enable you to fulfill your potential on your course of study.  The assessment takes about 2 hours.  The report will be emailed to you for approval and then sent to your funding body and to the Disability and Well-being Service at LSE.  The whole process takes about 4 months.
