Although there are many credits that take into account if your child is disabled (Earned Income Credit and Child care are 2) there is no specific credit just for having a disabled child.

Please let me know if you need clarification. If you do not then a positive 5 star rating is appreciated.
A positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I get credit for the response.
