Disability Benefits in Canada for Tic Disorder
Tic disorder is a condition that refers to rapid involuntary convulsions of certain muscles, leading to undesired movements or sounds. The severity of the convulsions, or ‘tics’, varies; the discomfort by the unpredictability of the condition is universal.
Facial twitching is the most common symptom of tic disorder, along with involuntary blinking, grimacing, and vocal tics (coughing or grunting). Depending on the type of tic disorder a person is suffering from, causes of the ailment include defective genes, a side effect to medications, or head trauma.
How does the Disability Tax Credit work?
Tic disorder can be a very difficult condition to live with, as the involuntary twitches can happen at inconvenient times. To keep the person safe, they may be limited, or stay away altogether, from the sports, hobbies, or activities the person enjoys. Tics in children is similarly challenging, as the disorder can be embarrassing or socially awkward for a child in school.
Considering the inconvenience and unpredictability of tic disorder, disability tax benefits are available in Canada in the forms of the Canadian Disability Tax Credit (DTC) or Child Disability Benefit. These programs are designed to provide a greater tax equity for differently-abled Canadians, providing relief through disability costs that are necessary. Other taxpayers don’t face these extra expenses – the DTC covers these added costs as a financial and emotional cushion for families in need.
