EI / Autism / ABA Services

Individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities can benefit greatly from appropriate services throughout the lifespan. Coordinated services and support can help individuals build happy, productive lives in their communities.


At May Institute, we have been providing the highest quality services available to children, adolescents, and adults with disabilities, and to their families, for more than 60 years. These services meet the needs of individuals at all stages of life, beginning with early intervention and home-based services for the youngest children with developmental disabilities, to private special education schools, to day habilitation and residential services for adults of all ages.

Meet Nancy and Roger

As a child, Nancy was brought to live at an institution that housed children with severe special needs. She remained there for decades, and then was moved to a nursing home. With the advent of deinstitutionalization in the 1980s, Nancy had her first opportunity to live in the community in one of May Institute's adult residences. She met Roger there, and he and other staff have been an integral part of Nancy's happy life since then.
