Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) Clinical Training

The ADOS-2 is the standard instrument for assessing autism spectrum disorders (ASD) across age, developmental level, and language skills. TRIAD is sponsoring a 2-day training workshop in use of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) to help assess and diagnose ASD. The course provides detailed, initial training for people who plan to use the ADOS-2 in clinical or school settings, and is the first step in training to use the ADOS-2 in research.

ADOS Training Workshops for Individuals and School Teams

The workshop goals are to provide a detailed overview of the ADOS-2, its development, its psychometric properties, and appropriate use and interpretation. Demonstrations of the measure are provided both days, involving live administration of the ADOS-2 by the trainer to individuals with ASD. Participants will practice scoring while observing the instructor administering the ADOS-2. Detailed discussions on scoring the ADOS-2 follow each demonstration.


Psychologists, pediatricians, behavioral specialists, and speech and language pathologists will be accepted for this training. Other individuals who regularly assess children with ASD or developmental disabilities are encouraged to apply and their application will be reviewed.
