Adaptive College Experience (ACE) Program

Program Overview

The program is intended for students with symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (including Asperger’s), and/or ADHD or Anxiety. The focus is on adaptive skills for the college setting, including organization, self-regulation, and social skills.

The ACE group uses evidence-based approaches from both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA).   The group provides a supportive, interactive, and experience-based forum for planning and discussing challenges related to the transition to college.
