There are 10 steps to starting and managing an RDSP. Step 3 is Appealing your Disability Tax Credit. If you are not approved for the DTC, you will get a letter explaining why you were turned down. At this point, you should probably get some professional advice, like a professional tax accountant who specializes in disability tax credits, or an advocate. A professional can help you decide how to proceed.
