HENRY COUNTY, Va. -

Autism now affects 1 in 88 children in our country.

We know more about it, but there's still a lot we DON'T know.

That's why it's so important to get the word out about autism research.

The Piedmont Autism Action Group is hosting its 5th annual Autism Awareness Conference .

It's happening September 27 and 28 at Stone Memorial Church on Virginia Avenue in Collinsville.

You can learn more about resources available for families affected by autism through this link to the Commonwealth Autism Service.
