In some cases the unreimbursed cost of attending a school is deductible as a medical expense if the principal reason for sending the individual to the school is to alleviate a neurological handicap such as diagnosed dyslexia or ADHD through the school’s resources.

The expenses of a special school that are deductible as medical expenses include amounts paid for lodging, meals, transportation, and the cost of ordinary education that is incidental to the special services the school provides. Also, any costs incurred for the supervision, care, treatment, and training of a physically and/or neurologically handicapped individual are deductible if the institution provides the services.
