Melmark New England


Melmark New England was developed in 1998 by a small group of human service professionals to serve students with complex and challenging needs. A service mission was established to meet educational, rehabilitative, and vocational needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), acquired brain injury, neurological diseases, dual diagnosis, and severe challenging behaviors.

The three founding senior staff have over 60 years of experience in Massachusetts providing high quality special education and clinical treatment services to children, adolescents, adults, and their families. 

In the time since its inception, Melmark New England has developed a reputation for treatment excellence and has achieved some remarkable results on behalf of the children served.

Melmark New England was founded as a new service division of Melmark, Inc., a Pennsylvania based provider of residential, educational, therapeutic, and recreational services for children and adults with developmental disabilities. The original program was established in 1966 by Paul and Mildred Krentel, whose youngest daughter Melissa was born with Down syndrome. Melmark has expanded its services over the years to additional special needs populations and into residential services on its campus and within communities throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania.
