July 2017 NEWS!

Due to increased demand for our services, the May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities in West Springfield has expanded and moved to a new location in West Springfield this summer!

The new site on Capital Drive will allow our program to expand and improve in many significant ways while maintaining the same exceptional educational services you’ve come to expect. Our expert staff are now able to do even more to educate students ages 3–22. Our school is staffed with a 1:1 staff-student ratio, and remains a full-day, 12-month program.

Key features:

  • Bright, brand new facility for students with autism and other developmental disabilities
  • Cafeteria, gross motor skills room, adaptive gymnasium, library/media center, and art /music room
  • Enhanced Vocational and Employment Program, including a life skills apartment suite and a fully functional school store
  • 17,000-square-foot-space, almost doubling our square footage


About our School.

The May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities in West Springfield, Mass., serves children and adolescents  with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. As part of May Institute’s national, award-winning network of research-validated behavioral and educational services, the school makes progress possible for all our students, even those with the most challenging learning and behavior problems.

Our school provides full-time, year-round educational services for children ages 3 – 22. Students receive highly individualized behavioral, academic, and vocational programming.

Staff work closely with families and school districts to prepare children for more independent living and, ideally, for a successful transition to the public school system.

We base our programs on applied behavior analysis, or ABA, which has been shown through hundreds of scientific studies to be the most effective method to teach children and adolescents with autism and other developmental disabilities.

We invite you to browse through these pages to learn more, and to contact us at any time. We look forward to talking with you.
