NEWS: For Immediate Release
[MUNCIE, INDIANA] Interlock (http://www.interlockin.org/), a not-for-profit organization that provides support, education and resources to individuals and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder, has made the difficult decision to postpone the 14th Annual Autism Awareness Fest “until at least summer” out of an abundance of caution and concern for public health and safety.
The event was scheduled for April 25, but the Interlock Board of Directors voted to reschedule the festival to an unspecified time, when the new coronavirus (COVID-19) no longer poses any threats. April’s family support group meeting has also been cancelled.
“After careful consideration, we have decided it best to postpone our event until at least summer. Many of our attendees are living with disabilities and compromised immune systems and it’s just not worth the risk.” said James Trinkle, Interlock Board President. “We will fulfill grants for families and schools as normal and will continue to provide our Facebook Support Group and make connections as normal during this time.”
The Interlock Autism Awareness Fest is typically the last Saturday in April. April is Autism Awareness Month and the group is planning efforts to raise autism awareness locally in lieu of the festival.
Our mission is to assist and educate families in East Central Indiana living with Autism Spectrum Disorder and to assist local special education classrooms to accommodate the needs of students with autism spectrum disorders. Interlock is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization. 100% of monies raised are used locally.
