At Expatclic we are very much aware that moving overseas with a child with special needs can be a very challenging experience. We also believe that there is not enough sharing of information, but mostly of common experiences on this particular situation.


Through the people we meet living abroad and our network, we have decided to create a space on Expatclic that collects testimonials of parents of children with special needs who have relocated abroad.

Besides general feelings and practical strategies adopted by these families, we intend to provide concrete contacts and addresses in several countries where an expat family with a child with special needs might happen to live.

Today we host Marion, a German friend who lived in Israel with Nathalie, her girl with special needs, who wants to share the following information about this country. You can also read Bernadette’s testimonial about her stay in Jerusalem with her special daughter Mathilde.

Should you have any information to add to this list, or information about life with special children in any other country, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Since you are here...

...may we ask you to buy us a caffe ? We are joking of course, but there is something we would like to tell you. You might have noticed that Expatclic has no ads or paywall. For 16 years we have been working voluntarily to provide quality contents and support to expat women all over the world. However, keeping such a big website going has some costs, which we partially cover with team member’s fees and donations of those who appreciate us and wants our work to continue. If you could give even a tiny contribution to cover the rest, we would be immensely grateful ♥ You can support us with a small donation or by becoming an honorary member. Thank you so very much.
