    The May Center School-Randolph is excited to offer a paid internship experience for you!

    We look forward to joining you on your journey, as you discover more about yourself, and what we do here at May
    Institute.

    You will learn about Autism Spectrum Disorder, Special Education, Applied Behavior Analysis, Speech and Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Psychology.....and so much more.

    We hope to provide you with a meaningful opportunity that enriches your knowledge and experience in the field.

    The May Center School is a Massachusetts Chapter 766-Approved school, providing educational and vocational services to students age 3-22 with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Developmental Disabilities.

    Classroom activities emphasize all areas of a student’s development, including communication, language, social, school-readiness, self-care, and play skills.


    Our methodology is based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, which focuses on teaching new skills, the documentation of progress in reports and charts, its foundation in research, and the manner in which it is individualized for every child.

    As an aMayzing Intern, you will be given opportunities to work hands-on, providing direct services to students, in collaboration with various specialty providers (e.g. Speech and Language Pathologist, Curriculum Coordinator, Educational Technology Specialist).


    Direct Services to Individuals:
    So much of teaching is learned through actual practice and implementation of skills. A portion of your experience will include hands-on teaching opportunities working with the students directly. As an Intern you will assist in the implementation of behavior support plans, academic programs, communication, social, and self-care skills. During this you will develop an understanding of different methods of data collection, evaluation and teaching methods.

    Collaboration:
    This is a big part of working with May Institute . You will work directly with our lead teachers, speech, occupational therapy and physical therapy teams, behavioral specialists and Clinical Directors, as well as classroom counselors, and assistant teachers to assist in developing programs and implementation strategies for our students.

    Research and Curriculum Development:
    As a school founded on the principles of applied behavior analysis, research is a big part of our decision making. Research allows us to make better-informed decisions and ensure that what we’re doing is considered best practice. As an intern with us you will have opportunities to do your own research in an area of interest and be supported in the development of a project.
