Hi everyone. We are looking to moving to Nicaragua with our 4 children. One of our children has a learning disability and an epilepsy syndrome that causes muscle tone seizures. My question to you all is how are children with disabilities treated in Nicaragua? Thanks in advance!

Nicaragua is a poor, developing country. I don't believe children with disabilities will receive the same amount of attention they can receive in the US.

Most drag their kids to the local free clinic or hospital. Child and mother are often kept overnight for observation. You will soon figure out which local doctors are good.

I have several young relatives who are constantly in and out of the hospital with digestive or respiratory problems. Having the mom stay with them helps keep the quality of care in line. Of course, clean air and sanitary housing would probably do them more good but that is not the norm here. On one recent visit the doctor on duty gathered up all the moms and warned them to NEVER let their kids drink Esteli tap water or frescos or leche in fritangas. Boil water if you cannot by purificada.

Those with the funds will go to private hospitals/doctors and pay cash. For minor things it is not a budget buster, A visit to a specialist usually costs 20 bucks in the countryside, probably a little more in Managua.

I have a grand daughter in the states who is ptd with epilepsy, a sad case of an individual who did not respond to intensive treatment, so I know what a burden it is to care for somebody. In Nic. a caretaker can be found for comparatively little money, just screen them good and aim for somebody with a little nursing training.

Best hospitals are in Managua and there is no medivac in the countryside.
