The disabled student finance is a program put in place with the aim of helping disabled students achieve higher education and also find work and manage to handle it well. The financing provides the students with everything that they need from equipment to mentoring services and all the advice they need to put them in a better position to overcome the challenges they face in their daily lives which could act as hindrances in achieving their best.
When in need of the student allowances, one will first need to pass the eligibility test. This is what weighs whether the students really need or deserve the allowance. The allowances are additional financial assistance and they are not required to repay hence the need to ensure that only the most deserving students get access to the money and physical assistance that they need to make their learning or working experience pleasant.
Upon passing the eligibility test, the funding body then books appointments for students for a needs assessment. The assessment is meant to identify the specific needs and challenges the students face at a personal level and also come up with ways of helping them overcome them. The assessment committee also provide the students with the advice and support services that they need to help them in having the most pleasant learning and working experiences which means that at the end of the day the students are more independent and armed to face life head on.
After the needs have been assessed, the committee in charge writes to the finding body giving the highlights of the needs that each of the students has. This is done with the approval of the students in question which means that they make sure that all their needs are well detailed in the report. The funding body then writes agreeing to the requirements after which the students get the allowances. In most cases, they will be given the information they need in tracking down all the equipment they need as well as the physical services they can work with to improve their situations.
The DSA finance has cut the differences that are normally there between the disabled students and the able ones thereby giving them equal chances of learning and working. The financing has proved to be of great importance to the students and the society in general and the program is slowly taking root in many regions of the world.
