About ADOS-2

The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule 2nd Edition (ADOS-2) is an observational assessment used to aid in the assessment and diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders across ages, developmental levels, and language skills. The second edition includes revised algorithms, a new comparison score for Modules 1-3, updated protocols with clearer administration and coding guidelines, and a new toddler module. This training is appropriate for clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, speech-language pathologists, school psychologists, social workers, behavior analysts, and other clinicians/researchers working in ASD assessment.

About the ADOS-2 Introductory Clinical Workshop

The ADOS-2 introductory/clinical training workshop will use a lecture format and live demonstrations to introduce the basic principles of administering and scoring ADOS-2 modules 1 through 4 and provide an essential step toward competence in using the ADOS-2 in everyday clinical practice or for research purposes. Learners will complete the course with a fundamental understanding of modules 1-4, in addition to experience observing and scoring two assessments with the support of a certified trainer.

About the ADOS-2 Toddler Module Clinical Workshop

The ADOS-2 toddler module may be used on children between the ages of 12 and 30 months of age. This workshop will use a lecture format and video demonstrations to introduce the basic principles of administering and scoring the ADOS-2 toddler module and provide an essential step toward competence in using the ADOS-2 in everyday clinical practice or for research purposes. Learners will complete the course with a fundamental understanding of the toddler module, in addition to experience observing and scoring an assessment with the support of a certified trainer.

The University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine (UCSF) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
