You are able to claim for equipment that will enable you to hear better in lecture rooms and seminars, even to connect to your computer, phone and television.
You will need to provide ‘medical evidence’ of your hearing disability when completing the DSA application form. This can be a letter from a Doctor, Audiologist or suitable hearing specialist. The form you need to complete can be downloaded here
After you receive approval that you meet the DSA requirements, you will need to have an assessment of your needs by an Assessor – To find your nearest assessment centre click here.
The Assessor then writes a report to the funding authority. If you or the Disability Assessor are unsure of what is best for your situation we can loan equipment, for you to try, this will ensure the recommended equipment is suitable. All we ask is that you take care of the loan equipment and let us have it back in the same condition we sent it to you.
