From the focus group we have an insight into the difference assistive technology can make to neurodivergent students. The aim going forward is to encourage all neurodivergent students to apply for the expert support available through the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).
Many students may feel a stigma if they were to apply to the DSA for support. There may be a lack of understanding and awareness about what help is available and confusingly who the DSA is for. Some Neurodivergent students may not consider themselves disabled and do not know the extra support that they can qualify for.
