Submitting an application

You can submit an application before the start of the school year, which runs from September 1 to August 31. You have up to 60 days following the last month of study in the current school year to submit your application.

Before submitting it, you must consult with a physician who must diagnose the disability and complete the medical certificate. You must then have your child assessed by a healthcare professional. This person will assess your child’s situation and determine the adaptive equipment and devices required to pursue their studies. The healthcare professional must complete the Recommendation section on the application.

Moreover, the administration of the educational institution must indicate your child’s level of education and period of attendance on the form.

Your child’s educational institution will send you the amount of the allowance by cheque.
