This workshop will be delivered in person at Mindful.
This workshop is planned to be in person with preferential bookings for Victorians. If due to COVID-19 the workshop is unable to be conducted in person, participants will be provided a full refund. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required. Participants are requested to conduct a RAT test before each day of attendance.
The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule Second Edition (ADOS-2) is a semi-structured, standardised assessment of communication, social interaction, and play. It provides a series of standardised contexts in which the individual’s social, communication and repetitive, stereotyped behaviours can be observed. It has been designed to assist in the diagnosis of autism and pervasive developmental disorders and is suggested as a complementary instrument to the Autism Diagnostic Interview Revised (ADI-R). Standardised toys and activities are used to present opportunities for social and communicative interaction with the examiner. During these activities, observation of the individual notes the absence of presence of behaviours of interest. A diagnostic algorithm consistent with DSM-V and ICD-10 clinical diagnoses is generated. Please review the flyer below before registering for this training to ensure it meets your learning needs.
