About the workshop

The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule - Second Edition (ADOS-2) is a widely used standardized assessment tool for diagnostic assessments of autism.

 

The online workshop is for professionals who would like to gain additional skills in diagnosing autism using the ADOS-2 across ages, developmental levels and language skills.

 

It covers modules 1, 2, 3 and 4 as well as the Toddler module, and includes discussion about:

  • the use of the ADOS-2 in making a clinical diagnosis

  • administration, scoring, and use of ADOS-2 algorithms

  • issues related to differential diagnosis, diagnosis in context, complex clinical situations, and report writing

  • current research on ADOS-2

 

 

What is unique about our ADOS-2 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
