Unfortunately you may not find anything suitable for your needs. You would have to send your son to an Asilo and hopefully they can accomodate. I have encountered endless families who are in the same situation and are frustrated. Regardless, contact the english/american schools who may be able to help you. If you are still in need contact me and I'll see what I can do to help out.

I don't know about support but if I'm not mistaken, the hospital in Siena is one of the world leading centres for autism.

Default ASD support in Italy

Hi I have just registered with this forum and my Italian husband would like to move back to Italy. We do however have a child (10) on the autistic spectrum and I wondered if you had now settled there and how you have got on.

I am also looking for contacts in the SEN education system to be able to ascertain whether a move would be the right thing to do.

Look forward to hearing from you.

We used a company called Italy Mondo. It was a great experience!

I am curious to know if you moved. I also have a 10 year old with high functioning autism and we are planning to move to Italy. I would love any information you can give me.

Hi everybody!
I don't know if it can be useful, but I know a school for autism in Brescia area (Garda Lake area- between Milan and Verona/Venice). I can't write the URL of the website (I'm a new member) but you have to google SCUOLABA ITALIA and you'll find it!


I know it's powered by a friend of one of my dearest friends; I also know that the owner of the school speaks english for sure, since she has worked abroad (don't remember if in Irland or England) for some time...
Try to contact her! Maybe can be useful or give you suggestions about autism here in Italy...
Have a good luck!!!

This thread has been very helpful for me, as I have a brother with autism who would be coming with me. Thank you for the help!

Donít think the Italian Gov has a similar scheme. Please let me know what your experience was. Also if there is any one else out there in Italy that can shed so light on the subject I will appreciate it.
Hello to everyone I'm Lizet 46 yrs. old from the Philippines. I will be going to Italy early this November to be with my boyfriend of 8 yrs. I will only have a 90-day tourist visa and hoping that I can find a job before my visa expires. I would like to work as a nanny ( with ABA training) to a family with a child with autism. I have a 19 yr old autistic son who's in his 2nd yr college taking up Bachelor of Arts in Performing Arts major in Speech and Theater Arts. He's also planning to take up Bachelor of Arts in Film in the near future. I have to find a job that can support his dreams.
Have a nice day!
