ADOS 2 Training
March 2 - March 5$500
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).
If you want to use the ADOS-2 for research purposes, you must establish reliability on the measure. The process involves first attending an ADOS-2 training for clinicians and then attending an ADOS-2 research training. This training is two and a half days and involves more intensive instruction on the psychometrics of the instrument, working in small groups on administering and scoring the ADOS-2, and discussion and question/answer about specific administration and coding issues.
Prior to attending training, you will need to have access to an ADOS-2 manual and kit. ADOS-2 kits, manuals and protocols are available through Western Psychological Services at 1-800-648-8857 or at www.wpspublish.com. After the workshop, you will be provided with DVD administrations of the ADOS-2 and scored protocols to view and score for reliability. You will then send two post course DVD recordings of yourself administering different ADOS-2 modules (1 DVD must be either a Toddler, 1 or 2 and the other must be a 3 or 4) and respective scored protocols within three months of your training. For more information, contact Dr. Costanza Colombi.
