Many children with developmental disabilities have never had the opportunity to participate in team sports so this free clinic provides a safe and fun environment for them to learn educational tools like teamwork while developing core basketball skills.

Split into two sessions during the day, Williams and his team will work alongside Touro University Nevada student volunteers, and clinicians to teach attendees a variety of basketball drills, tactics and teamwork fundamentals. All children participating in the clinic will receive lunch, a t-shirt, mini basketball and a backpack filled with healthy snacks and other items.

The facility offers multiple evidence-based therapy services for children 18 months to 12 years; as well as diagnostic neuropsychological evaluations for children 18 months to 17 years.
