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.
