Introduction to the ADOS-2 (MODULES 1-4) & ADOS-2 Toddler Module Clinical Workshop

March 6 @ 09:00 - March 8 @ 18:00

Introduction

The ADOS® is a structured and standardized assessment to evaluate a child’s communication, social interaction, and play. Providing specific contexts allows observing the child’s social behaviours, communication skills, and repetitive behaviours. The purpose of the ADOS® is to aid in diagnosing autism spectrum disorder and is often used alongside other clinical interviews, such as the ADI-R. Standardized toys, materials, and activities are used during the assessment to create opportunities for social and communicative interaction with the examiner.

Target audience: Clinical Psychologists, Educational Psychologists, Counselling Psychologists, Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Psychiatrists, Paediatricians
