The May Center for Early Childhood Services in Randolph, Mass., is offering an intensive summer program for young children, ages 3 – 7, with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Children will receive one-on-one instruction based on the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA), which has been shown through hundreds of scientific studies to be the most effective method to teach children with autism and other developmental disabilities.
