Requirements: These workshops are designed for both clinicians and researchers.
For clinicians with a prior background in autism and formal testing this 2-day workshop is sufficient to support use of the ADOS-2 to inform the diagnosis of autism and autism spectrum disorders. Physicians, psychologists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists will be better prepared to make educational placement decisions and evaluate programs after completing the workshop.
Individuals with less background in testing but who provide service for individuals and families affected by autism may take the workshop for informational purposes.
For researchers, this workshop is prerequisite to more thorough training offered by the ADOS-2 authors and designed to achieve the high cross-site inter-rater reliability required in published research.
All participants who attend the entire training will receive a Certificate of Attendance for 12 hours signed by Dr. Rachel Hundley.
American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) CEU certificates will be available for speech-language pathologists who have attended the entire training.
