Friends of The Autism Place Trivia Night
The Friends of The Autism Place will hold its 5th Annual Trivia Night on November 16, 2019, at the ISU Alumni Center, 1110 N. Main St., Normal. All proceeds from the event will go to provide funding to The Autism Place (TAP) at Illinois State University.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with trivia competition beginning at 6:30 p.m. Cost to participate is $240 for a team of 8, $35 per person or $70 per couple and includes dinner by Bandanas. The evening will also include a silent auction featuring products and services from local businesses.
TAP at Illinois State University was established in 2007 as part of the statewide network of support provided under The Autism Program of Illinois. Friends of TAP was founded in 2009 by parents who had family members receiving services from The Autism Place. Their initial goal was to reduce the number of families on the waiting list for services through increasing financial support and awareness through fundraising efforts. TAP at ISU was in danger of closing in 2015 due to the state budget crisis until Friends of TAP secured an off-campus location to hold TAP services at Milestones Early Learning Center in Bloomington.
Locally, TAP at Illinois State University serves more than 100 families in McLean County and the surrounding areas. Critical services provided by TAP include intervention for children and their families, consultation with schools and families, training to professionals and parents, and evaluation of intervention effectiveness. In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control reported that as many as 1 in 59 children could have Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many of the services offered by TAP cannot be obtained through other avenues.
