It seems the government is looking to make changes to the Disabled Students Allowance that some students are eligible for whilst at University: https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/higher-education-student-support-changes-to-disabled-students-allowances-dsa

There is a fear that many students (including dyslexic students) are likely to lose out if these cuts go ahead. I was sent this link to an e-petition and thought I would share it just in case it is of interest/concern to anyone else.

Yes, thanks for that. Can't say I'm surprised. The changes to Incapacity Benefit and Disability Living Allowance have already devastated some lives. Feel the disabled have received a raw deal in today's society....sad.
