For the past decade, parents who attend the National Autism Conference held annually at Penn State have had the valuable resources of the conference's Children's Institute available to them. The Children's Institute affords parents the opportunity to attend the weeklong conference with their children under the same roof.
The staff is highly trained and designs numerous activities for the kids. There even is a sibling workshop for children living with an autistic sister or brother. To see a video about the Children's Institute, visit /video/165234/2013/02/09/video-no-title online.
