May Institute

Integrated Adult Autism Services

The new Center for Integrated Adult Autism Services offers a continuum
of critical services and supports to men and women with a diagnosis of
ASD. We also have the expertise to successfully respond to the needs of
individuals with a dual diagnosis of ASD and a co-occurring disorder.

Service plans are tailored to meet the specific needs, goals, and strengths of each individual served, and may include a combination of clinical and therapeutic supports, employment services, and housing opportunities. An evaluation and assessment process will help identify the optimal supports recommended for each individual.

The goal of our services is to equip individuals with the skills, resources,
and supports they need to live and work successfully in their communities. This is best achieved through a combination of stable and appropriate housing, productive employment, and the emotional and practical supports to engage successfully with the world.

The Center’s services are offered by May Institute in collaboration with WORK Inc. It is funded through the Department of Developmental Services in Massachusetts and insurance.

Training Services

Developmental Services (DDS), service providers, and family members.
