Funds raised through the Wild West Shootout basketball tournament will go toward helping families with an autistic child attending the UNR Early Childhood Autism Program, which specializes in early intensive treatment for young children with autism. The program offers a comprehensive, individualized treatment program that emphasizes the child’s development in the areas of language, communication, socialization and personal behavior. With its connection to UNR, the program is also a training site for university students involved in the science and practice of treating these children.
