Transportation, Taxation, or Guardianship
As part of his Third Academy duties, Dr. Chang provides documentation for benefits when a family does not have another health care professional available to do so. These include Calgary Transit Access, the Disability Tax Credit, and capacity assessment for parents seeking guardianship of their adult child.
Your child may be eligible for Calgary Transit Access services. Please review the eligibility criteria carefully. Should you choose to apply, please download and complete the application form . Parts A to F, as directed in the application form. Please send your application by email to Dr. Chang to make a telephone or Zoom appointment.
A capacity assessment evaluates whether an adult is capable to make personal or financial decisions and can understand the consequences of such decisions. Please review the process and criteria for a capacity assessment.
Before Dr. Chang can do a capacity assessment as part of his Third Academy duties, parents must:
- obtain the agreement of the child;
- obtain a letter from a medical doctor verifying that the disability is not caused by a reversable or temporary medical condition
Once you have done this, please email Dr. Chang to make an in person or Zoom appointment.
Dr. Chang does not do capacity assessments if the parent and child are not in agreement, which would require the parent to make a court application to obtain guardianship.
