Self-Funded Specialist Tuition

The DSA can take time to process depending on when you received your specialist assessment that identified your disability.

Some students and their families choose to self-fund Specialist Tuition rather than delay

If you chose to self-fund, you are strongly advised to select a qualified adult/post 16 Specialist Tutor either from Patoss Tutor Listing or by contacting the ADSHE administrator or the DSA-QAG database

The same Quality Assurance systems apply to self-funded specialist tuition
