Our team

My name is Elange Jean Pierre, mother of a 6 year old boy with autism. I am confronted every day with the lack of resources available to help families like mine. I knocked on the doors of several resources but unfortunately the availability or services were never adapted to my reality.

In December 2020, I asked a very important question to my child’s school principal: “Is there a childcare service for people with disabilities?” She replied that this service doesn’t yet exist, but that we should create it! It was the biggest revelation of my life!

Following this meeting, I was finally able to understand why we’ve been waiting over 3 years for a respite service on Montreal’s South Shore. The number of existing child care spaces are limited, in addition to the decreasing number of available sitters since the pandemic has decreased, this obviously creates a feeling of helplessness among families!

I now felt an urgent need to create something to help families who have autistic children ages 5 and up and adults up to 21 years old. I decided to create my own respite and babysitting network to overcome all the difficulties that I encounter day after day.

In January 2021, I created Répit Absolu.

We are a team of qualified and competent attendants and educators.

Our mission is to contribute to the growth in the number of places in childcare / respite services and the recruitment of qualified personnel in order to improve the lives of families in need and increase their feeling of security.

For our first year, we were able to offer babysitting and home respite services throughout the Montérégie région.

Home services have already started since April 2021.
