Resources Developed at the Maine Autism Institute for Education and Research

Welcome to MAIER’s Family Resource page. MAIER staff works with Maine families to identify issues of concern and interest to families living with autism and collaborates with our community to develop new resources to support those needs. The resources on this page were developed by MAIER staff and UMaine faculty with the expertise and support of Maine parents and caregivers, educators, autism experts, and professionals. We invite you to explore our MAIER resources, and check back often, as we continue to develop new resources to enhance the lives of individuals living with ASD and their families.
