My DSA ... I wouldn't have managed university without it, I'm sure of that.
I got it soley because of my HMS and associated problems, but you do have to explain a lot about what you struggle with, and that can be quite upsetting (I'm not trying to put you off, but I wish I'd realised how hard the assessment would be before I did it)
As for what I was awarded ... there's a bit of a list
I got around Ã‚Â£3,000 of equipment initially - computer (including voice recognition software) desk, chair, dictaphone, book rest and training for the more technical stuff
To save me getting books out of the library and getting them home, I have Ã‚Â£300 an academic year to spend on books.
I'm entitled to Ã‚Â£50 a year photocopying (ideal if it's just one chapter of a heavy book you want to read.
And I get Ã‚Â£200 a year for peripherals - batteries for the dictaphone, printer paper, and 2 printer cartridges a year.
I get taxi travel paid for over what I would pay on the bus aswell
They also send a copy of the report to the university, with recommendations on what can be done to make things easier and, at least in my case, the disability support people sent the information to my lecturers.
I don't know how the educational psychologist would fit into the process - as I said, I had to go to an assessment centre for mine.

Edited to add taxi info and to say:
The DSA can be reviewed aswell, so if you need something extra, it can be provided - when I first started the course, I managed on the bus, but had to start getting taxis. I spoke to my disability advisor, who contacted the LEA and they agreed to extend the funding.
