The ENHANCE Program
The ENHANCE program is a therapeutic support program which takes a holistic approach and focuses on social, emotional, and organizational growth to assist those students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger’s Syndrome in adapting and flourishing in college and beyond. ENHANCE offers additional services and resources to support our students over and above what is required under current disability law.
Ramapo College has long been at the forefront of supporting students with learning differences and the ENHANCE program is an exciting new opportunity intended to help new students transition from high school to college and keep current students academically and socially engaged in order to maximize their college experience.
ENHANCE consists of the following components:
- Individualized weekly appointments with Program Coordinator
- Weekly group meetings for peer support
- Students to be paired with trained Peer Mentors
- Social events
- Parent Workshops
Through these components the ENHANCE Program strives to provide students with individually tailored supports to identify their own personal goals to address and enrich:
- Academic performance
- Social interaction with peers
- Interaction with campus personnel
- Organization and time management
