2018 Trustees' Fund Award Recipient

Director of Skill Acquisition
May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities and Corporate Headquarters
Randolph, Mass.

[Read press release.]

Sarah has been with May Institute for only one year, but what an impact she has made. She has been heavily involved in updating training materials to bring the most up-to-date, research-based practices to our programs. She also led a team of post-doctoral fellows and clinical directors as they implemented didactic and hands-on training with every employee of the day program at the May Center School in Randolph (MCR). She is now leading a team to roll out these same trainings to our residential program.

Sarah pitched in and served as Interim Clinical Director for several classrooms at MCR for several months before we were able to fill that position. Her attention to those students and support for that team helped ensure continuity of services in what could have been a difficult transition time. Sarah has played an integral part in developing critical programs and systems that will help move our schools away from cumbersome paper-and-pencil data collection to easy and efficient technology-based systems using Central Reach.

Sarah has co-authored a book chapter and written several papers for publication, advancing the dissemination of best practices. She is also a fulltime doctoral student at Simmons College and the mother of two children under the age of 5. This speaks to her efficient work ethic and ability to juggle numerous responsibilities.

Sarah is humble and gracious, and one of the most collaborative individuals on our team. If she has a resource, she shares it. If someone needs help, she shows up. She is skilled at looking for the best in each person, identifying it, and building on it. She finds the positive and uses it to motivate staff to work with her to make improvements.
