Helping Universities to Create Alternative Format Information



Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) is changing


Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) is changing and from this September, universities in England need to ensure they’re ready and able to support ALL their learners.

“The higher education institution (HEI) should make any reasonable adjustments that may prove necessary, before DSA funded support is provided to an individual student”

In practical terms, the government are shifting responsibility from the student to the university and this responsibility includes resource provision. One of universities new responsibilities will be the creation of alternative format materials for learners with dyslexia, low vision, blindness or a physical disability that prevents access to a physical book.  

The good news is that there’s no need to panic; Dolphin is ready to make the transition an easy one!
