This 2-day workshop teaches, through instruction and live demonstration, how to use the ADOS-2 to clinically assess and diagnose autism.


The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule 2 (ADOS 2) has become the standard instrument for assessing ASD across age, developmental level, and language skills. Participants will learn how to use the ADOS 2 in clinical practice to assess and diagnose autism. A combination of lecture, live demonstration, video presentation, and discussion will allow participants to practice scoring while observing the instructor administering the ADOS 2. The course will provide an introduction to the ADOS-2 (Module 1-4) as an assessment tool, and prepare the first step in the process for establishing reliability.  It provides an essential step toward competence in using the ADOS -2 as part of clinical assessment.


Who Should Attend?

Psychiatrists, psychologists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, pediatricians, and other professionals who assess and diagnose autism spectrum disorders. ADOS-2 is intended for use by both clinicians and reseachers working with individuals with autism.
