PROJECT EPIC (ENCOURAGING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IN CHILDREN)
May 23 @ 4:30 pm - June 28 @ 6:30 pm$144
Increasing opportunities to participate is an essential piece in getting these children active and excited about physical activity. Moreover, empowering children with opportunities to guide their own activity experience increases the overall enjoyment and meaning they attach to that experience, thus providing increased motivation to continue into the long-term.
Project EPIC is aimed at providing children and youth diagnosed with autism with increased opportunity to participate in a physical activity environment according to how they desire. The surrounding environment will be set up as to encourage children and youth to freely explore their surroundings, engage with different equipment, and discover physical activity that is meaningful and exciting to them.
This course runs over 6 sessions every Wednesday starting from May 23rd and ending on June 27th and will be split into two groups:
- Ages 4 to 7 will run 4.30pm to 5.30pm
- Ages 8 to 12 will run 5.30pm to 6.30pm
