Established in 1992, the May Center School for Brain Injury and Neurobehavioral Disorders is one of only a handful of pediatric programs in the United States focusing on both education and rehabilitation of children and adolescents with brain injury or neurological disease.
This nationally recognized school provides exceptional services to children, adolescents, and young adults, ages 5-22, with a broad range of neurobehavioral challenges. These include acquired or traumatic brain injury, genetic or chromosomal disorders, seizure disorders, mood disorders, and intellectual and neurodevelopmental disorders.
We provide full-day, year-round educational, behavioral, medical, and rehabilitative services, and use proven methods of treatment and teaching based on the latest clinical and applied research. School services may be combined with an on-campus or community-based residential program at one of several homes in nearby neighborhoods.
Children and adolescents with neurobehavioral disorders and related challenges need a special place where they can receive the individualized services necessary to rebuild their lives. They need a place where they can belong, and an environment that supports skill development and rehabilitation and fosters new friendships.
The May Center School is just such a place. Here, our students learn to overcome obstacles, control impulsive and aggressive behaviors, and become more independent. Children with neurological injury learn to walk again and talk again.
With the support of a highly trained, compassionate staff, students continue to learn and grow, receiving the specialized services they needed to achieve their personal best. Some graduate from high school, some learn new vocational skills; nearly all return to a less restrictive environment with new life skills, a sense of pride, and hope for the future.
Located in Brockton, Mass., 40 minutes from Boston and 50 minutes from Providence, R.I., the May Center School is a Massachusetts Chapter 766-approved school.
