Narrative

DPH Certified early intervention program. Early Intervention is an integrated Developmental service available to the families of children between birth and three years of age for whom there are developmental concerns due to identified disabilities, or whose typical development is at risk due to certain birth or environmental circumstances.

Specialty Services - a program for children under the age of 3, receiving Early Intervention Services (EI can be from DPH Certified EI programs throughout Hampden County), and have a diagnosis of Autism.  The supports are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and are held where ever the child spends his/or day.

Insurance-Based Autism Program - for children over the age of 3 with a diagnosis of Autism.  The supports are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and are typically held at the child's home.  Currently accepts Mass Health and other insurances - parents are encouraged to call the May Institute to inquire which insurance plans are accepted within the agency.
