1.What about if the education for child is done at home since in many places no such recognised school for special children?
2.The form for the disabled children education allowance is same as that for normal children , though for disbled child most parameters are diffrent. Thus , education expenses on disabled child (especially mentally disabled child ) is very difficult to be reimbursed (though the CEA for disabled is Rs.24000/ as against Rs.12000/- for normal child)

What about a disabled child who is third one of the employee as only first two children are likely to get education reimbursement. Is this admissible as per rule.
