Runaways

Police forces define a runaway as follows: “A child less than 18 years of age who runs away from the family home or from a substitute place of residence.”

Runaways are not bad children! They are usually children that possibly face various problems in their family milieu. Some situations become so intolerable to them that they end up thinking that living anywhere else would be better than living in the family home. Parents are not always aware of the problems that their children face, and then one day, disaster strikes and they run away. This event is followed by a period of great anxiety, stress and soul-searching for the parents.

Given the number, frequency and profile of the young people involved, there is an unfortunate tendency to down play this type of disappearance. Runaways are vulnerable. Since they must take care of themselves, there is a very real risk that they will become involved in criminal activities such as prostitution, drugs, theft or others.

Thank you for all of your time and devotion to something we hold very dear; the safety of our students!!

As part of Autism Awareness Month the Missing Children’s Network is joining the movement to spread kindness and awareness. Over the month of April we will be posting various resources and publications and encourage you to share them.

Presently many youth with autism and their families are being directly impacted by the COVID 19 pandemic. We know many parents and caregivers are looking for ways to explain the current situation to their children and maintaining a routine, while school is out. We would like to share some resources and information to assist you all during these unprecedented times.

nationalautismassociation.org/covid-19-resources-for-families/Afin de prendre part au Mois de l’autisme, le Réseau Enfants-Retour se joint au mouvement de sensibilisation. Au courant du mois d’avril, nous allons publier plusieurs messages et ressources et vous encourageons à les partager par la suite!

À l’heure actuelle, plusieurs jeunes autistes et leurs familles sont affectés directement par la pandémie de Covid-19. Nous savons que plusieurs parents et gardiens sont à la recherche de moyens adaptés pour expliquer la situation à leurs enfants, tout en gardant une routine alors que les écoles sont fermées. Nous souhaitons partager avec vous des ressources et informations pertinentes qui pourraient vous être utiles lors de cette période sans précédent.
