SPORTS http://ekainc.org Exceptional Kids Athletics Inc (EKA) is a non profit 501C3 company that provides athletic programs to children with special needs ages 4 yrs to 22yrs old with any type of physical/cognitive impairment from very high functioning children to severally profound medically fragile children in Gwinnett County, GA. We were founded by an Occupational Therapist, Aimee Prainito, MA, OTR, who ha almost 3o yrs of experience working with special needs children, her late husband Scott Prainto, and Jonn Warde, a former international soccer player who has a child with Autism in June 2012. Our goal is to make these programs as typical as possible and as close to a regular recreational league as we can. We started EKA because the mother, Lisa Fochtman, of one of Aimee's clients was complaining to Aimee that there were no local special need sports programs locally that fit her schedule and required a lot of work on the parents part. When Aimee told Scott about it, he suggested they start their own sports program. So with the help of Jonn and advisors Mark Carr and Adam Guillion, EKA was formed. Soon after Daniel and Serrah Dodson rounded out our board of directors. We are different than other special needs athletic programs is that EKA is run by and OT and a soccer professional. Parents do not have to coach. We provide buddy volunteers and adult volunteers that have been trained to work with the special needs population. Anyone over the age of 18 who volunteers must pass a background check. Most of our coaches are coaching certifies and CPR/First aid trained. No one is allowed on the field without a background check. We also play in a gated or locked in facility with a sign in and sign out sheet. We do everything we can to protect your child. We provide scholarships to those in need.
