May Institute’s Board of Trustees has honored seven of the organization’s employees with Trustees’ Fund Awards. May Institute is a national nonprofit that provides educational, rehabilitative and behavioral healthcare services to more than 25,0000 individuals and their families with autism spectrum disorders and other special needs every year.
Established in 1993, the Trustees’ Fund Awards recognize staff members who exemplify the Institute’s ideals of service and professionalism. The Fund was created through personal contributions from the Institute’s Board members, who recently honored each recipient with a plaque and a gift of $500.
The recipients of 2008 Trustees’ Fund Awards are:
“On behalf of May Institute, I congratulate all of the Trustees’ Award winners,” said President and CEO Walter P. Christian, Ph.D., ABPP. “Making a difference in the lives of individuals with special needs takes very special people with very special skills.”
Over the past five decades, May Institute has evolved from an organization with one school for children with autism into an award-winning national network that serves over 25,000 individuals and their families annually at more than 200 service locations across the country. May Institute has four schools that serve children with autism and other developmental disabilities and one for children and adolescents with brain injury. The Institute also provides training and consultation services to professionals, organizations, and public school systems.
