DISABILITY TAX CREDIT
What is the Canada Disability Tax Credit (DTC)?ADHD can make life challenging. Canada's government understands this and offers help through the Disability Tax Credit (DTC). This guide explains how children and adults with ADHD can apply for the tax credit.The DTC is a tax credit that lowers income tax for people with disabilities or their families. In addition, it provides financial support to Canadians with ADHD.How to Qualify?
To qualify for the DTC, you must:
1. Have ADHD, which affects your life for 12 months or more.
2. Face "marked restriction" in one or more daily activities, which means the impairment affects you 90% of the time and takes 2-3 times longer than average to complete tasks.These activities include:
• Concentrating: Severe difficulties focusing on schoolwork, managing finances, or maintaining employment.
• Communicating: Challenges with verbal communication due to impulsivity, causing constant interruptions or an inability to express thoughts and ideas effectively.
• Dressing: Struggling with sequencing (putting clothes on in the correct order) or managing fasteners (buttons, zippers, etc.).
• Eating: Difficulties planning, preparing, or consuming meals, including challenges in grocery shopping, cooking, or remembering to eat due to distraction or hyperfocus on other tasks.
• Time management: Significant difficulties leading to missed appointments, deadlines, and overall disorganization in daily life.Your Beyond ADHD Nurse Practitioner can confirm your ADHD and how it affects your life.Being eligible for the DTC can open the door to other federal, provincial, or territorial programs such:
1. Registered Disability Savings Plan
2. Canada Workers Benefit
3. Child Disability BenefitThe DTC is a valuable financial resource for children and adults with ADHD, helping to offset the expenses associated with managing the condition. Knowing the eligibility criteria and application process is essential for successfully accessing the DTC.Fee $199.00 + HST>> CRA DTC Information

WHAT IS ADHD?
ADHD is a chronic neurodevelopmental disorder affecting 5% of children and 4% of adults in Canada, or 1.5 million Canadians.Children and Adults with ADHD have inconsistent performance at school and work and struggle with day-to-day responsibilities. They experience difficulty in relationships with family, friends, and loved ones and experience chronic feelings of frustration, guilt, or blame. Individuals with ADHD may also experience challenges in executive function and working memory and are often stigmatized as being disorganized, unreliable, unmotivated or lazy.Often unrecognized, misdiagnosed, and undertreated, ADHD can lead to severe consequences, including school failure, family strain, impaired social interactions with peers, chronic low self-esteem, depression, substance abuse, accidental injuries, and job loss.Treatment can minimize the negative consequences associated with ADHD and dramatically improve productivity and quality of life.Every province in Canada has committed to improving the mental health and well-being of Canadians. While “early identification and intervention," “healthy communities,” and “access to timely services” are words we often hear, for people with ADHD, these are nearly impossible to attain when wait times for mental health services can be up to 1.5
