DSA Connect: Empowering different learners

The right support makes a world of difference in education.

This year's DSA Connect celebrated the support provided to neurodivergent students by the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA). We learned about neurodiversity and the assistive technology that's making education more accessible.

Whether you're an Assessor, SENCO, AT specialist or student, join us in helping all students to meet their potential.

In partnership with

Logos of Diversity & Ability, DO IT Solutions, and ADHD Foundation: The Neurodiversity Charity

At this free virtual event...

Hear from students and assessors about all aspects of the DSA experience. Plus, neurodiversity experts and people with lived experience share how technology supports all kinds of learning needs.

Sessions cover:

  • How disability and neurodiversity can affect learning
  • How to support different learning needs
  • The assistive tools available from Texthelp
  • The experiences of DSA students past and present

Plus, see the findings from our research into the experiences of neurodivergent university students (in partnership with Censuswide).
