About the workshop

The Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised (ADI-R) is a widely used, standardized assessment tool for establishing autism diagnoses. The comprehensive interview, which can be administered in person or via telehealth using videoconferencing, allows clinicians and researchers to collect valuable information about an individual’s behaviours and developmental history to evaluate possible symptoms of autism.

Goals of the workshop:

  • Learn the fundamentals of ADI-R administration and scoring
  • Practice ADI-R coding through observation of two ADI-R administrations and detailed coding discussions
  • Develop practical skills in using and interpreting ADI-R algorithms and classifications
  • Explore the clinical use of the ADI-R (e.g., report writing), its psychometric properties, and associated research

What is unique about our ADI-R workshops?

  • Workshops are kept small to allow for discussion and questions
  • Our team has extensive experience with a wide range of ages and populations, including working with linguistically and culturally diverse populations, and we bring this experience to all our workshops.
  • We believe that the context in which diagnostic tools are used is important - we welcome discussion about attendees’ own clinical or research context so we can offer advice on best practices and helpful adaptations.
  • All workshops are led by certified trainers.


This workshop is offered in French.
