The Autism Diagnostic Interview, Revised (ADI-R) Introductory Clinical Workshop

October 17 - October 18

$700 – $750

We are happy to announce that Sunfield Center in collaboration with the University of Michigan School of Kinesiology is offering an Introductory Clinical Workshop on the Autism Diagnostic Interview, Revised.

Autism Diagnostic Interview, Revised (ADI-R) Clinical Training

Dates: Thursday, October 17 & Friday, October 18, 2019
(Thursday and Friday 8:00am-4:30pm)
Location: University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI.

The ADI-R (authored by Michael Rutter, Anne Le Couteur, and Catherine Lord) is a comprehensive interview that provides a thorough assessment of individuals suspected of having an autism spectrum disorder. The interview questions, which are administered to caregivers, cover several content areas including early development, language acquisition/possible loss of language or other skills, current functioning in regard to language and communication, social development and play, as well as restricted interests and repetitive behaviors. The ADI-R in conjunction with the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2nd Edition (ADOS-2) has proven very effective in diagnosing autism spectrum disorders in individuals suspected of having autism.

This training is designed for professionals with a prior background knowledge and experience in autism, clinical interviewing, and assessment of individuals with ASD. Psychologists, physicians, speech-language pathologists, social workers, and professionals and graduate students in related fields are welcome to apply. Those who intend to use the ADI-R in research must attend the ADI-R Research Training and establish research reliability with a designated research group. Learning objectives include: Observe administration of the ADI-R, recognize red flags for behaviors that are indicative of a diagnosis of autism, discuss and practice coding and scoring of the ADI-R, practice using the algorithm to determine autism classification, practice administration of the ADI-R, assess developmental history and current concerns to rule out autism.

During this two-day workshop, trainers will provide an overview of ASD, including the importance of early diagnosis and treatment and best practices for diagnosing ASD. Additionally, trainers will present on the clinical use of the ADI-R including a review of administration and scoring procedures. Independent trainers will be providing the workshop through a variety of teaching methods, including lectures, videos, coding discussions and administration of the instrument.
