My child has been diagnosed with ADD and dyslexia. We have spent a fortune on assessments and therapies not covered by the medical aid. I had to pay these. My partner pays the medical aid. Last year we were on a medical aid that didn't cover these expenses and they have accumulated. Do I send you the total of the therapies and diagnostics?

When you complete your return you would include these expenses and click that you have medical expenditure for Impairment/Disability which means SARS will allow special credits for these expenses. SARS may ask for these documents so keep them in case they do ask. When you go through the process of answering Tim's questions you will be asked to enter these amounts.
