Additional payment for disabled child?

by Lena

I have recently filled out form 2201 for my son with Down Syndrome who is 5. I have received back CDB payment and back income tax due to the credit.

What I am trying to find out about now is an additional payment paid aside from these two areas. A friend of mine has a child with autism and she has received $ 2500.00 from the government but it does not come with her income tax.

I have phoned the government several times and no-one seems to know what this would be. Would you know what she is talking about? I know many times it only has to do with filling out the proper paper work.

Can you not ask your friend what she did?

If your friend is in BC she may have recieved funding under a program specific for children with Autism. Information for the program can be accessed here:
