This three-part series of workshops is for professionals involved with diagnosis and assessment of persons perceived to have autism. The workshop will use a case-oriented style, covering how to use the CARS-2 assessment instruments in the diagnosis of autism. It is applicable in the use of these instruments in telehealth. The first two sessions will include case studies where the participants will practice scoring using the CARS-2 High Functioning Version and then the CARS-2 Standard Version. The third session in the series will review the factors that help with differential diagnoses.
At the completion of training, participants will be able to:
- Use the CARS Second Edition-High Functioning (CARS2-HF)
- Use the CARS Second Edition- Standard version (CARS2-ST)
- Use assessment techniques and differential diagnosis of ASD versus other psychiatric disorders
This series is intended for psychologists and other professionals who are involved with the diagnosis and assessment for individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
