Woburn, Mass. | May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities

The May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities is located in Woburn, Mass., 20 minutes from Boston. The school provides educational services to children and adolescents ages 3-22 with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. It is one of May Institute’s four special education schools in Massachusetts and California for students with ASD and other special needs.
