ADOS-2 Administration and Coding

ADOS-2 is the latest edition of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), the generally accepted gold standard for autism diagnosis. The 4-day ADOS-2 workshop trains delegates to the level of clinical reliability and optionally to research reliability. Details

ADOS-2 for Adult and Forensic Services

This course leads to full ADOS-2 accreditation but focusses its content on the use of ADOS-2 with older clients in an adult or forensic environment. All 5 ADOS-2 modules are covered but with a special emphasis on modules 3 and 4, and on the use of modules 1 and 2 with non-verbal adults. Details

ADOS-2 Update

For existing users of the ADOS, this one-day course updates your skills to include the new Toddler Module as well as the new coding and algorithm aspects introduced in ADOS-2. Details

ADI-R Administration and Coding

The 3-day ADI-R workshop equips delegates to administer and code the Autism Diagnostic Interview - Revised (ADI-R) to the level of Research Reliability. The Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) is a detailed parent interview covering early developmental history together with current and early behavioural presentation. The interview covers each area of the autism triad – communication, reciprocal social interaction and repetitive/stereotyped behaviour.Details
