ADOS-2 Clinical Workshop
WPS offers 2-day workshops that teach, through instruction and live demonstration, how to use the ADOS-2 to assess and diagnose autism.
The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) improves an instrument already viewed as "the gold standard" for observational assessment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). WPS offers 2-day workshops that teach you how to use the ADOS-2 to assess and diagnose autism. Experienced workshop leaders describe the ADOS-2 and demonstrate administration and scoring, operationalizing diagnostic criteria for ASD. You'll have the opportunity to practice scoring while observing the instructor administer the ADOS-2 to a child with ASD. The workshop focuses primarily on Modules 1 through 4. Attendees are given materials to study later in order to complete training in the Toddler Module. This workshop is for professionals unfamiliar with the ADOS-2. Clinicians already trained in the ADOS can update their skills by reviewing the ADOS-2 Manual and completing the ADOS-2 DVD Training Upgrade Package (W-606DVD).
