Second you need to get the professional to fill in a T2201 Disability Tax Credit Certificate for your child.If your Doctor or other professional says, “I have never done this before” or “I don’t have very good luck with these”, I would strongly suggest you find a Doctor or Hospital that does have experience with child disability benefit forms (CHEO in Ottawa, Sick Kids in Toronto, The Children’s Hospital in Montreal as a few examples).If your child is diagnosed, and they are in need of special schooling, you can also apply for the Education Costs to be treated as a Medical Expense.

Nothing can be more frustrating than not getting benefits you deserve because of the writing shortcomings on a form.After you have the T2201 (disability tax credit form for child), you can now start applying for the Child Disability Benefits, by filling out RC66 – Canada Child Benefits Application Form.The form is relatively straight forward to fill in, and wasn’t hard for my wife and myself, but there was an added wrinkle suggested by the OCTC Social Worker. Since our son was diagnosed at age 3, we also applied to have the diagnosis and thus the benefit retroactive to my son’s birth.We have found the following lists of religious Internet sites of interest.They deal with a wide range of spiritual, religious, human rights, medical, ethics and secular topics.If your diagnosis is approved by the CRA the next step is to start looking for Medical and Disability related Tax implications, and asking the CRA for refunds.
