What are Non Medical helpers (NMH)?
Non Medical helpers (NMH) are people who can provide support for students with a disability. They can include Specialist one to one Study Skills Tutors, Specialist Mentors, Assistive Technology trainers, BSL sign language interpreters etc.
Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) can pay for NMH support. A Needs Assessor decides whether someone requires NMH support. This is based on what is discussed during a DSA Needs Assessment.
