To receive the supplement for handicapped children OR the supplement for handicapped children with exceptional care needs, you must be eligible for child assistance and meet certain requirements.
Financial assistance for all children
Additional assistance for a handicapped child
A supplement of $190 a month paid to all families who have a child under age 18 that we have deemed to be handicapped. Its purpose is to provide assistance to families for the care and education of a child with a handicap that significantly limits his or her life habits for a period expected to last at least one year.
Financial assistance paid for a child who has prolonged physical impairments or a designated mental function disability causing severe, multiple disabilities which prevent him or her from carrying out, without assistance, daily activities similar to those expected for a child the same age. The financial assistance will help parents who take on exceptional responsibilities provide special care or ensure a continual presence at the child's side.
