EPIC Long Island
"EPIC Long Island’s commitment to excellence is rooted in the belief that education, training and supportive services can help all individuals reach their fullest potential. Established in 1953 by a small group of parents of children with epilepsy who were determined to see their children lead productive and satisfying lives, our founders worked tirelessly for all those with epilepsy.
Our longevity as an organization and our success in improving the lives of so many individuals throughout the years is a direct result of our planning for changes in the environment and being flexible in our response to the needs of the communities we serve.
Over the years, EPIC Long Island has grown from a small support group for parents to one of Long Island’s leading centers of excellence for providing care, education, support and services to individuals with epilepsy, to individuals with developmental or intellectual disabilities and more recently, children and adults with mental health challenges."
