May Institute

Home-based Services for Children

We are now offering home-based services to
families in the Wilmington, North Carolina area!


May Institute offers home-based consultation to help families develop effective strategies to support their child's development in the home and community. Using universally recognized, developmentally appropriate teaching methods, we work to improve the lives of children and adolescents (up to 22 years) with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, as well as those with brain injury and psychiatric disorders.

The following May locations offer home-based services:

Building Skills
Our intensive home-based services help children improve communication, social, and behavior skills; self-help skills; and learning skills such as imitation and attending. Services are individually designed for each family. Home-based therapists provide parent education and training to ensure that the skills children learn during their therapy sessions are maintained and refined at home.

Our home-based services also include:

  • Diagnosis, assessment, and evaluation

  • In-home teaching and intervention

  • Home-school collaboration

  • Community respite support

Working Together – Early Intervention Services
Our family-centered Specialty Services program provides individualized services five to 30 hours per week to children from birth to age three with ASD. After age three, children may receive services in either home or school settings.

We work closely with early intervention and/or school teams to provide a comprehensive program for each child based on the goals outlined in the IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan) and IEP (Individualized Education Program).
