no advice, but whatever tax credits pay, it is the parents concern, not yours. Hard though that is, you do need your business hat on. I understand you wanting to help, but a 12 yr old with additional needs sounds like MORE work to me, rather than less.

as you say, if mum is quibbling over costs, then it is up to you, but I think I too, would be saying no thank you.

good luck xx
