For more than forty years, EPI has provided personalized care, education, training, advocacy, and support solutions to meet the needs of people with developmental disabilities, epilepsy, and brain injury. We have an enduring legacy of partnering with those we serve and with their families.

We share our founders’ indomitable drive to put first the needs and the dreams of the people we support.
What distinguishes EPI is our focus on offering progressive, tailored care solutions to people with developmental disabilities, epilepsy, and brain injury.
