Is there anyone currently employed or applying who have children with disabilities and/or complex medical needs? I saw a message on here a while ago about an applicant who was given an offer that was subsequently rescinded because of their child's specific learning disability (of course, I can't confirm if the post was true or not). However, it made me wonder: are overseas locations not able to provide good enough living situations for dependents who have these needs/challenges?

TGIF @jgray1278 and @Hello-Goodbye, Did DoDEA HR share with you the locations where there are EDIS facilities (for children with disabilities) adjacent to central military hospital facilities? There is a directory of EDIS locations and services here: https://www.dodea.edu/Curriculum/specialEduc/upload/oconusdirectory07.pdf

I'm glad to hear you have some updated information which you can share it with ...See More
Hello_Goodbye Thank you all for your detailed comments and information! I am glad that I asked this question. I can see I have a lot more to research and consider beforehand.

@jgray1278 - I have sent you an email. Thank you for offering to speak with me about this in more depth!
