ADOS-2 Facilitated Training Description


The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, 2nd Edition (ADOS-2) is considered a “gold standard” instrument used for assessing and diagnosing 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.  It also contains a Toddler Module designed to assess children ages 12 – 30 months.

The two-day ADOS-2 workshop is designed for clinicians with a prior background in autism and formal testing, including psychologists, educational diagnosticians, special education teachers, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and social workers. The workshop will use a lecture format and videos to introduce the basic principles of administering, coding, scoring the algorithm and severity metric for ADOS-2 modules 1 through 4. This training will provide an essential step towards competence in using the ADOS-2 as well as how to establish inter-rater reliability on the instrument.  Participants will also gain an understanding of how to incorporate the ADOS-2 results into a comprehensive-team based evaluation in the public school setting.  

Workshop conducted by:  Dr. Jan Schaefer, BCBA-D and CEO of CARE Behavioral Health, LLC (CARE BH, LLC) has extensive experience evaluating and treating individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) across the age span. She is a “research reliable” administrator of the ADOS-2.  She and her team provide consultative services to school districts and other entities across the US and she also owns a behavioral health agency providing in-home and community-based services to individuals with ASD and their families utilizing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and other evidenced-based practices.
