ADOS-2 Clinical Training Description
The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) improves an instrument already viewed as the gold standard for observational assessment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This
2-day workshop will instruct you on how to use the ADOS-2 to assess and diagnose autism.
Our experienced workshop leader will describe the ADOS-2 and demonstrate administration and scoring, operationalizing diagnostic criteria for ASD. During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to practice scoring while observing the instructor administer the ADOS-2 to subjects with ASD.
This workshop will focus primarily on Modules 1 through 4. Attendees will be given pre-course materials to review prior to the course, and upon completion of the workship, will be given materials to study in order to complete training.
