Welcome to our newest May Center School, which opened in Chicopee in September 2022!

“Our school in West Springfield (see video) has an excellent reputation in the western Massachusetts community,” says Erica Kearney, M.A., LABA, BCBA, Executive Director of the new school and former director of the West Springfield school. “This is due in large part to the school’s exceptional, evidence-based services and consistently high levels of engagement that the staff provide students.”

The new Chicopee site is a Massachusetts Chapter 766-approved school, and its staff members include certified special education teachers, Board Certified Behavior Analysts, and other specialists. These highly trained professionals use proven methods of teaching and interventions based on contemporary educational and ABA research.

Our Vocational Program includes a fully functional kitchen, apartment suite, and expanded capacity for vocational training.



Our spacious, state-of-the-art facility is specifically designed to support the unique needs of our students. In addition to eight traditional classrooms, the school has two classroom apartments for functional and vocational skill-building, a computer lab, library, individual learning rooms, a game and music room, and a gym with an attached gross motor room, and an outdoor play area.

Parents of neurotypical children are usually keenly aware of the importance of their teen's prom and all the preparations that must be made for the big day. On the other hand, parents of children on the autism spectrum may think of a prom as yet another milestone event that their son or daughter will be unable to experience.
