ARCANUM, Ohio (WDTN) – A raffle is underway to help an Arcanum family.

2 NEWS introduced its viewers to Callum Watt in February. The 4-year-old was diagnosed with Autism two years ago. Callum was completely non-verbal when he was diagnosed.

He been making small strides with a type of classroom-type therapy called ABA, but his parent, Rana and Ethan, believe a new play-based therapy called Sunrise would help him come out of his shell.

A Greenville woman donated a handmade quilt to the cause, and it’s now up for grabs in a raffle. The proceeds will help pay for travel expenses and accommodations as the family travels to Massachussetts for a seminar on Sunrise Therapy. The seminar will teach the Watts how to implement the treatment for Callum at home.

The Watts have posted information about the raffle online, where you can enter to win the quilt.
