What is EPIC?

EPIC is a program at Children’s Autism Services of Edmonton designed to provide both segregated and inclusive opportunities for children and youth to engage in physical activity and recreation. EPIC is inclusive of a variety of activities that are designed to meet the child where they are at in terms of their ability to engage, thus providing children and youth diagnosed with autism with increased opportunity to participate in physical activity and peer interaction according to their abilities and preferences. Rules, structure, noise, social demands, physical requirements, interest and other factors can impact on a child’s ability to participate.

Why is there a need for EPIC?

What are the overall goals/objectives of EPIC?

What types of services are included within EPIC?

EPIC includes several services including summer camps (both in-house and within the community), gymnasium sessions devoted to exploratory physical activity and active discovery, and gymnastics sessions within the community. New opportunities are being sought regularly.

Who is involved with EPIC? Who can contribute to EPIC?

Currently, Children’s Autism of Edmonton staff and community partners contribute to EPIC’s programs. Community organizations are being approached to continually expand opportunities and develop a partnership with Children’s Autism Services of Edmonton.
