Introduction to the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) (IN-PERSON)
February 21 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
One event on February 22, 2023 at 8:30 am
The ADOS-2 workshop will provide an overview of the five (5) modules of the ADOS-2 (Modules 1-4 and the Toddler Module). There will be demonstrations of two of the modules followed by an opportunity to practice and discuss scoring. The clinical use of the ADOS-2 will also be discussed.
The participants will be given DVDs of the administration of two modules of the ADOS-2 in advance of the workshop. Please note, materials will be sent out once payment has been secured. Prior to the workshop the participants should review the manual and DVDs. Participants are responsible for acquiring their own copy of the manual and score sheets for practice. Please note, it is helpful, but not necessary, to bring the manual to the training. Other materials, including protocols for use during the training, will be provided.
At the completion of the conference, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of the ADOS-2 as a diagnostic tool
- Identify standardized administration procedures of all five modules of the ADOS-2
- Discuss the coding considerations necessary for reliable scoring of the ADOS-2
- Interpret and report the results of the ADOS-2 as part of a broader diagnostic evaluation
