A program to build kindergarten readiness skills for preschoolers challenged by self-regulation and social expression.



EPIC is an intensive 25-week program for Medi-Cal eligible children ages 3.5-6 who have difficulty self-regulating their emotions and behaviors. Featuring social emotional learning, occupational therapy, and family-centered play therapy, EPIC offers children and their families skill building services to improve children’s capacity to self-regulate and respond age appropriately and increase families’ knowledge of child development and build a community of support.


EPIC operates on site in pre-school, T-K or Kindergarten classrooms, providing individual and group therapy and in-classroom and mileu rehabilitation services. To be eligible for EPIC services, a child must be enrolled at one of EPIC’s partner school sites and have full-scope Medi-Cal.


For the 2023-2024 school year, EPIC is running programming at Sankofa Elementary School and Laurel Child Development Center.
