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. 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.
