Default Autism Support in Italy

We will be relocating to Rome in the new year. We have an autistic son (ASD/Aspergers) and I am wondering how autism is viewed in Italy and whether there are any support groups etc etc. Can anyone share their experience of a move to Italy with an autistic child? Thanks!

I hope you get an answer to this...the though of this move for you must be challenging and nervewracking without these answers!

Blessings!

Thank you for your thoughts! I have not had any replies to my post. But we have always felt quite alone when it comes to my son!

I am a little anxious about the move! The company my husband works for is pulling out of the Midlands in the UK and so we have to move. But at least he has his job! Although I have been lucky enough to travel lots throughout my life I have never been to Italy! It is a fabulous opportunity even if very daunting!

Wishing you all the best too.

OK so I tried to send you a pm (private message) and it looked like it went through, but my inbox said that I have sent o messages...but I could see my messages to you when I click on your name, so I guess my posts came out on your public page? I deleted them.

Anyone here know how to send a pm?

for some reason "sent" message take ages to register in the "sent items" it should have gone through ok.

Just going back to the original post I did find a website for the Autism Society in Italy - but it is written in Italian of course so unsure if this is of any use to you ??

Hi Sue,

But when I click on her "view public page" I am (was...I deleted it) seeing my post to her. Which I really didn't want out in the open.

Now I do not see any symbol for a private message, so I am thinking they are all public. Is that true?


On another note...I like your "chatty" signature!

Hiya

OK you can only send private messages after making a certain number of posts (5 I think!) .... so if the person you are trying to send the PM to hasnt made enough posts they wont be able to accept PMs either. Provided both of you have made the required number of posts on the forum you will have the facility to use the Private Message system .... it will show up as an option then.

Hope that makes sense Im having a bad start to my day lol so my brain is a little bit off !!

Thanks for the compliment by the way .... Sue

hold on, I think you have to change something on your profile to enable your account to show sent messages. They go to the recipient alright, but you dont get to keep a copy???? If thats the problem have a root around and so will i and let you know

.... back to your question. If I were you, I think I'd phone one of the international/British schools in the area you're looking at (have a google) and ask them if they have any info. They may not be able to help you directly, but they may know about how things work over there???

Hi. I am wondering how you are going with support for your Autistic son in Italy? I also will be relocating to Italy in about 8 months and our 5 yo son also has been diagnosed with Autism. I am in two minds as here in Australia the government has granted funding to families with Autistic Child for early intervention, which has helped tremendously. 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.
