ADOS-2 and ADI-R Clinical Combo


This virtual 5-day course from BeginningwithA is for clinical professionals who are working in autism and are looking for training in both ADOS-2 and ADI-R. The course leads to full clinical accreditation in both ADOS-2 and ADI-R.

Is This Course for Me?

The combo course is ideal if you are looking for clinical training in both ADOS-2 and ADI-R. No prior experience with the instruments is necessary.
