May Institute Expands Services, Opens May Center for Evaluation and Treatment


Randolph, Mass. – May Institute, a leading national provider of educational, rehabilitative, and behavioral healthcare services for individuals with special needs, recently opened the May Center for Evaluation and Treatment on its campus in Randolph, Mass. This newest May Center now serves children and families with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and developmental disabilities, as well as those who have behavior disorders and mental health diagnoses.
Located in Randolph, Mass., the Center replaces the Institute’s former ASD Clinic, and features an expanded array of services that includes comprehensive assessments and treatments for individuals with mental health conditions such as anxiety, ADHD, behavior and mood disorders, and social and communication challenges. Diagnostic evaluations, assessments, outpatient therapy and treatment, and family support for children with ASD continue to also be available.
“This new Center is an important expansion of our behavioral health services,” said Lauren Solotar, Ph.D., ABPP, May Institute’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “It is a comprehensive service model that makes it easier for families in Randolph and surrounding towns to access specialized services that are in high demand. We also offer mental health services at our May Counseling Centers in Walpole and West Roxbury.”
According to Center Director James Luiselli, Ed.D., ABPP, BCBA-D, the Center will enable the Institute to respond to the diverse needs of a wider audience of children, adolescents, adults, and families. “For example, we will offer evidence-based interventions for a number of specific conditions including feeding and rumination disorders, elimination disorders, sleep disorders, and school avoidance and adjustment problems,” said Dr. Luiselli, who is also May Institute’s Senior Vice President of Applied Research, Clinical Training, and Peer Review.
The Center’s new services also include programs and educational offerings specifically designed for parents such parenting techniques; stress management; marital adjustment issues; communication skills; and parent and family education, training, and support.
