Disability Tax Credit - a monthly supplement that can help with your extra expenses that you incur due to your child (ie. Special Diet, IBI, babysitting). Make sure that once your child is approved for the Disability Tax Credit that you then send in a T1 amendment requesting a reassessment. Most will be approved for reassessment back til birth. This has nothing to do with the date of your child's official diagnosis. This reassessment could mean thousands of dollars in refunds for families. If you use an accountant to do your taxes then they can apply for this amendment for you.
