Telethon Kids Institue's CliniKids will run ADOS-2 in-training in Wanneroo in mid-July (final places available). New dates for 2025 training have also been released.

What is the ADOS-2?

The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule – Second Edition (ADOS-2) is a standardised observational assessment of the social, play and communication skills of individuals who may be on the autism spectrum. It is considered a gold standard assessment tool in the diagnosis of autism.

ADOS-2 Training (4-day ADOS-2 Training) covers Modules 1-4, which allows for the assessment of individuals from as young as 31-months-old and through to adulthood, at all levels of language ability. This course covers:

  • Introduction to the administration and coding of the ADOS-2 Modules 1-4.
  • Opportunities to watch and code videoed administration of the ADOS Modules 1-4.
  • Practical use of the ADOS with a volunteer and individual feedback.
  • Discussion of the application and interpretation of the ADOS-2 and how it relates to autism diagnostic assessment.

Trainees should come away from the training confident to develop their fluency in the use of the ADOS-2 in their clinical setting. Upon completion, trainees receive a certificate to confirm that they have completed ADOS-2 Module 1-4 Training.

Additional training (2-day ADOS-2 Toddler Training) is required to learn the ADOS-2 Toddler Module, which is most suitable for the assessment of toddlers 31-months-old and younger.

Who can attend?
The course is open to Speech Pathologists, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Psychiatrists and Paediatricians. Previous experience working with autistic individuals and their families is required.
