My son is diagnosed with hearing loss in Apr'2011; loss is more than 80% for both ears. I got him hearing aid (1 Lakh) and he is undergoing speech thrrapy (2,000 INR monthly). Can I claim these expenses under IT section 80 DD or/and 80 DDB for the current financial year 2011-12? If so, what proof should be asubmitted for each of the claims?

Can you please explain the difference between 80DD and 80 DDB?
