The May Center School is located in Randolph, Mass., 20 minutes from Boston. We provide educational and vocational services to children, ages 2.9-22, with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. It is one of May Institute’s four special education schools in Massachusetts and California for students with autism and other special needs.
Approximately 50 percent of the students who attend the school live in one of our community-based residences.
The classrooms typically have 1:2 staff-student ratios, and our highly trained staff utilize the most effective methods of working with children with asd. Classroom activities emphasize all areas of a student's development, including communication, language, social, school-readiness, self-care, and play skills.
For older students, we emphasize transitional skills and strive to help students live more independently. The Todd Fournier Center for Employment Training and Community Inclusion, located on the May Center campus, helps prepare young people to successfully transition from a school environment into the larger, and often more challenging, outside world.
Our school's spacious, state-of-the-art facility offers an array of services specifically designed to support the unique needs of our students. Some of the features include an adaptive gymnasium, custom-built indoor and outdoor play areas, a vocational training room, a multi-media library, art and music rooms, and an expansive medical suite.
We are a Massachusetts Chapter 766-approved school.
