Genetic developmental disorders are among the most dramatic and devastating disabilities that we see through our work at Canadian Disability Benefits. These disorders, including De Vivo disease affect a child from the time they’re born and will continue to shape that child’s life for as long as they live. The Canadian Disability Tax Credit program can provide up to $35,000 in benefits for the child’s care and other financial needs.
What is De Vivo Disease?
De Vivo disease is a rare autosomal dominant disorder which has been identified in less than 100 cases since its discovery in 1991. Though rare, the effects of this disorder appear early, between 1 and 4 months after birth, and can be especially devastating.
Symptoms of De Vivo Disease
90% of De Vivo disease cases first present as infantile seizures which initially strike within the first 4 months of life. Following the seizures, De Vivo patients will experience delayed growth of the head and brain which leads to global developmental delays and even a permanently undersized cranium in the most severe of cases. While a ketogenic diet has been found to help minimize symptoms in many patients, there is no cure and many will require expensive long term care. In order to offset the costs of this much needed treatment, the Canadian Disability Tax Credit program can provide your family with up to $35,000 in benefits per claim if you apply now.
How Canadian Disability Benefits Helps
While saying all you have to do is apply today in order to receive your Canadian Disability Benefits, anyone who has dealt with government paperwork will tell you that it is a deceptive statement. Despite the program’s good intentions, the inevitable government red tape has barred far too many Canadians from receiving it even though they fully qualify. Canadian Disability Benefits has spent more than 30 years in this business and will help to make sure you qualify for the maximum available benefits with as little difficulty as possible.
