Welcome to our website. The Maine Autism Institute for Education and Research (MAIER) is a partnership of the University of Maine and the Maine Department of Education. MAIER was established at the University of Maine in 2014 to build statewide capacity to improve outcomes for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) through leadership, training, professional development, collaboration, and research.
MAIER offers advanced course work in autism spectrum disorders; conducts research and evaluation; provides community services including professional development, training, consultation and technical assistance; and disseminates relevant current information related to our work to individuals with disabilities, families, professionals, and the community-at-large.
We hope that you will find our website interesting, informative, and useful—and that you will return often to see what is new at MAIER.
