May Institute Launches Pediatric Specialty Center in Santa Clara County
Date:1/15/2009

st recent philanthropic gift comes through two grants from the Valley Foundation in Los Gatos. A challenge grant of $100,000 will help further diversify financial support for the Center. An outright grant for an additional $100,000 will primarily underwrite the Center's diagnostic and treatment services for lower income households in Santa Clara County.

Services offered through the Center will include:

  • diagnosis, assessment, and evaluation;
  • intensive home-based services and parent training;
  • child and family support, including therapy and social skills groups; and
  • specialized school consultation.

According to the Center's Clinical Director Eleanor Castillo Sumi, Ph.D., services will be offered at the point of need -- in families' homes, children's schools, or at the Center. "We will also be making referrals to medical specialists in the community," she added.

"As a leader in the field, May Institute will help the Silicon Valley and nearby communities quickly expand and refine the best practices that have been shown to dramatically improve the outcomes for children with developmental disorders," said Michael K. O'Farrell, retired Vice President, Applied Materials, Inc., and father of a child with autism. "The Center will also help knit together a much more capable and integrated continuum of services throughout the community."

The May Institute Pediatric Specialty Center is located at 393 Blossom Hill Road, Suite 201, in San Jose. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call 408-629-3050, or e-mail info@mayinstitute.org.
