Hearing loss is something that affects countless people across Canada, and every person’s situation is unique. They may have been born with partial hearing loss, or an accident may have damaged their ability to hear. Regardless of the circumstances, it’s important for those with a hearing disability to find the support they need to live the life they deserve. At First Support Professionals, we’re always happy to work with those who have significant hearing loss and those who care for them on a daily basis.
Sudden and Gradual Hearing Loss
The disability tax credit doesn’t concern itself with how a person lost his or her hearing, only that their ability to hear has been drastically reduced. An industrial accident could have caused permanent hearing damage, or there may be an inherited genetic defect, and our team will help you understand if you meet the qualifications for the tax credit. If you’re the parent or guardian of a deaf child, we’ll walk you through the steps of applying for the Child Disability Benefit.
People with significant hearing loss can lead normal, healthy lives, and we want to do our part in ensuring they receive the benefits they deserve. It can seem like a burden to fill out the paperwork and navigate the tax credit process, and that’s exactly why First Support exists – to guide and encourage you every step of the way. If you or a loved one has a hearing disability, and you’d like to learn more, please contact us right away.
