Characterized by disorders in behavior, social interaction, and communication, autism can create enormous stress on a family—stress that is magnified when effective services are not accessible. Therefore, parent education and family support are a critical part of May Institute's early intervention and home-based services, which are individually designed to meet the needs of each family.
Individualized parent training and support is offered through the May Center for Evaluation and Treatment at our Randolph, Mass., location.
May Institute also offers a variety of trainings and support services for parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These trainings are available in the various May Center Schools and at different program locations throughout the country.
