Coming to Berlin from a different country can be exciting but also met with some trepidation: What are the cultural differences? Will we find 'our place'? A family with a child with learning challenges or special educational needs will need to see doctors, the SPZ and/or the KJGD (Kinder- und Jugend Gesundheitsdienst). I can arrange all of these important meetings for you, help to prepare for the meetings and obviously also come with you for language and moral support. Once the first steps are complete, we will go and find the right daycar or school for your child.
Kristen - "Anyone who has had to set up disability supports for their child in their own country will know how difficult navigating the system can be, but doing this in another country when you cannot speak the same language is completely overwhelming. Thank you so much Julia for your advice and support, and for 'making things happen' when we were given such long waiting periods and it felt like all the doors were being closed on us. You've gone above and beyond and we've been so grateful to have you on our side!"
