5. Every family is entitled to a monthly allowance, in the amount prescribed by regulation, in respect of each child who is a handicapped child within the meaning of the regulations and in whose respect a family allowance is payable.
To ascertain whether a child is handicapped, the Board may require that the child be examined by the physician or expert it designates. If the family fails to comply with the requirement, the allowance shall not be granted or, if it has already been granted, shall cease to be paid from the month following the month during which the examination should have been made.
