May Center School for Children with Autism Expands, Moves to Wilmington


Randolph, Mass. The May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities, previously located in Woburn, has moved to 50-E Concord Street in Wilmington. Part of May Institute’s award-winning network of programs and services for individuals with special needs, the school provides full-day, year-round educational and vocational services for children and adolescents from preschool to age 22.

“An increased demand for our services necessitated this move, and we are so pleased that our new, larger facility will enable us to serve more students,” said Executive Director Jaimie L. March. “The Town of Wilmington has been warm and welcoming. We hope many members of the community will be able to join us for our formal Ribbon-Cutting and Open House on Friday, May 12, from 1:00pm – 3:30pm.”

A Massachusetts Chapter 766-approved school, the new May Center School in Wilmington has a staff that includes Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and certified special education teachers. These highly trained professionals use proven methods of treatment and teaching based on the latest educational and applied behavior analytic (ABA) research.

“We offer an individualized curriculum for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities,” said March. “As our students grow and mature, we work closely with families and school districts as we prepare students for more independent living and for a successful transition to a range of adult services.”

May Center teachers work with students in small groups or one-on-one, employing an evidence-based ABA approach, and combining the best practices of child development, special education, speech pathology, and physical and occupational therapy to meet each student’s individual needs.

The brand new 22,000-square-foot Wilmington facility features large, bright classrooms, a cafeteria, gross motor skills room, adaptive gymnasium, library/media center, and art/music room. The campus also incudes a 3,000-square-foot outdoor play area, and an enhanced vocational and employment program, including a fully functional kitchen, school store, and expanded capacity for vocational training for older students.
