Child Tax Credit for 23yo son with Autism?

My son was 23yo in 2016 and attending school full-time, living with us for 9 months of 2016. He has Autism and receives SSI, but the child tax credit is only reflecting $1,000 for our younger child. Doesn't he qualify as he is under 24yo and has a disability?

Child Tax Credit for 23yo son with Autism?

Unfortunately, no, your son is too old for this credit. The Child Tax Credit is just based on age, so any child who was age 17 or older during the tax year does not qualify.
