ADOS-2 Advanced/Research Training (Spanish and Korean Groups Available)

The UCSF STAR (Service, Training, Advocacy & Research) Center for ASD and NDDs will be offering an advanced/research training workshop for the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2), with groups available for English, Spanish, and Korean-speaking participants.

The ADOS-2 advanced/research workshop is designed for individuals who have already completed ADOS-2 clinical/introductory training, including those who would like to establish research reliability so they can use the ADOS-2 for research purposes. This training is two and a half days and involves more intensive instruction on the psychometrics of the instrument, working in small groups on administering and scoring the ADOS-2, and discussion and question/answer about specific administration and coding issues.
