This week, the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel has played host to the National Autism Conference. The conference featured the artwork of children with autism at the Art of Expression exhibit on Wednesday.

Children were also given the opportunity to participate in a musical to be performed at the end of the conference. 

Susan March, a conference staffer, has assisted with the musical production for 11 years. She advocates the importance of art as a means of expression for children with autism.
