Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) is being ‘modernised’; in effect it is the latest round of cuts that disproportionately affect disabled members of society. DSA provides financial and technical help so that disabled students can flourish in their courses. As a dyslexic student I’ve been granted some fantastic technical help which has enabled me to organise my studies more effectively. There is no doubt that by cutting back on these kinds of provisions dyslexic and other disabled students will suffer in terms of marks and subsequently in the job market.
Please sign the petition asking the government to think again on this harmful cut.
