The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule- 2nd Edition (ADOS-2) Introductory/Clinical Workshop is a two-day workshop and will be presented via Zoom. All participants are required to have their own copies of ADOS-2 protocols (Modules 1-4) during the training in order to score the ADOS-2 while watching videos of administration and participate in scoring discussions. These protocols can be purchased via Western Psychological Services. Participants may find it useful to bring an ADOS-2 manual to the training as a reference (not essential).Only 60 slots are available, so participation is based on a first-come, first-served basis.

The ADOS-2 is a widely used and well validated direct observation tool used in the diagnostic assessment of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The administration of the four modules of the ADOS-2 will be outlined. (Note: Toddler module not included.) Video demonstrations of some of the modules will be shown and used in order to discuss scoring criteria in detail.
The ADOS-2 suggests clinical experience with ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as previous training and experience in assessment. It is recommended that attendees undertake as many practice opportunities with the ADOS-2 as possible after attending the workshop in order to use the ADOS-2 reliably for clinical or other purposes.
