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.



Active Discovery is a structured, play-based program aimed at providing children and youth increased opportunity to participate in physical activity according to their abilities and preferences. The surrounding environment will be set up to encourage children and youth engage in games, engage with different equipment, and play common gym games with additional supports such as visuals, timers, etc. Our program focuses on proportionate expectations and support resulting in success!
