Change spouse claiming Child Disability Tax Credit

For the Child Disability Tax Credit, TurboTax says it will "claim the disability amount transferred from your dependant on the spouse with the highest income (after deductions).", however when I review the return the credit is on the spouse with the lower income - how do I fix this?

Credits and deductions

If you are filing your return together with your spouse, TurboTax will optimize the Disability Tax Credit claim starting with the person with the higher income after deductions.  If that person does not need all of the credits, they are automatically allocated to the other spouse so that the credits are not wasted.
