There is no such deduction as a disabled tax credit. You are claiming her as a dependent. In order to claim her medical expenses, they must be greater than 10% of AGI.

There is no specific "disabled tax credit". You MAY be able to qualify for Dependent Care Credit depending upon your income level to pay for supervision and care while you or your spouse works/goes to school. There are conditions to that. There is an additional personal exemption amount for filers over 65 and/or statutorily blind. Really, you can only claim her medical and care expenses associated with that IF YOU ITEMIZE. Most people just get to claim that person's personal exemption and that is it.
