My son is autistic and was approved Child Disability Benefit when i submitted for T2201 previously. Where do I apply for CDB in TurboTax for 2017 tax return?

My son is autistic and we were approved for the Child Disability Benefit when i submitted for T2201 previously. Where do I apply for CDB in TurboTax for 2017 tax return? There must be a checkbox or something for the CDB, but I cannot find anything.

Nothing to indicate on your tax return for the Child Disability Benefit. 

From CRA: If you have already applied for the CCB for a child who is eligible for the disability tax credit, the CDB will be calculated automatically for the current and the two previous CCB benefit years. Beyond these benefit years, a written request to the appropriate tax centre or tax services office will have to be submitted.

On your tax return, you may claim a disability amount transfer from your son. Instructions for this transfer are below.
