How do i claim my 18 yr old disabled child if i provide all or most of her care and she can't work or go to school?

You enter her as a dependent in the Personal Info section of the program.  You would enter her personal information including date of birth.  Select that she is your child.  That she lived in your home for the whole year, check the disabled box if appropriate.  Select that she was not married, if she was not.  Indicate who her are parents are.  Select that she did Not provide for over one-half of her living expenses.  Select that another relative did Not live in the home and support her.  And lastly enter her Social Security number.

If you entered her as your dependent correctly, there are no interview questions for her being in school since she is under the age of 19.
