LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Dozens of kids took to the basketball court Saturday to get some tips from someone who knows a thing or two about the game. 

Former U of L star Luke Hancock held his 3rd annual basketball clinic at Middletown Christian Church for kids with autism. 

FEAT of Louisville, which stands for Families for Effective Autism Treatment, partnered with Hancock for the event. 

Volunteers with the clinic helped the children work on basketball drills and learn new techniques. 

Hancock says it's a very rewarding day for everyone involved. 

"You see these kids light up when you teach them to use the square and make a shot, or go through a dribbling drill or whatever the case may be," he said. "They just come out and have a great time and that is what it is all about."

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability today, affecting one in 59 children.
