Posted Jul 02 2010 12:00am
Awaare.org is a collaboration of AUTISM ONE | AUTISM SPEAKS | DOUG FLUTIE JR. FOUNDATION | HOLLYROD FOUNDATION | NATIONAL AUTISM ASSOCIATION | TALK ABOUT CURING AUTISM dedicated to keeping our loved ones safe. From their site With little public understanding about autism-related wandering, coupled with a lack of resources to combat occurrences, drowning deaths associated with autism elopement remain a leading cause of fatalities among children and adults on the autism spectrum. Although no formal data exists about the number of wandering incidents per year, cases are becoming increasingly common and awareness alone can play a major role in reducing occurrences.
