As seen in recent local and national television specials, autism is a developmental disability that affects, often severely, a person’s ability to communicate and socially interact with others. Currently, autism is believed to affect 1 in 110 people.
The current investment to treat a child in the Program full-time is approximately $4,000 per month. Through the fundraiser, the Wild West Shootout, the Sierra Kids Foundation is able to offer scholarship funds so that more children with autism will have the opportunity to participate in, and benefit from the UNR Early Childhood Autism Program.
