ADOS-2 Clinical Worshop

 

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.
 
Third Party Training Programs

 

ADOS-2 Research Workshop

The ADOS-2 clinical workshop offered by WPS is a prerequisite to the more thorough research training offered by the ADOS-2 authors and their colleagues. Research training includes exercises to establish item coding accuracy to a specific criterion and is designed to help individuals achieve the high cross-site interrater reliability that is required in published research. WPS is not involved in research training workshops.

For information about ADOS-2 research training workshops, including current dates and locations, please visit the website of the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain (CADB): https://psychiatry.weill.cornell.edu/education-training/autism

CADB also offers other training opportunities, such as one-day workshops focused solely on learning the Toddler Module (for researchers and clinicians who are already trained in Modules 1-4 of the ADOS or ADOS-2). WPS is not involved in these other training opportunities.
