STAR Center to offer ADOS-2 workshop

The UCSF STAR (Service, Training, Advocacy & Research) Center for ASD and NDDs will be offering an introductory/clinical workshop for the second edition of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2) at the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute on February 28-March 2.

ADOS is 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, and a new toddler module. The ADOS-2 introductory/clinical training workshop will use a lecture format to introduce the basic principles of administering and scoring all ADOS-2 modules and provide an essential step toward competence in using the ADOS-2 in everyday clinical practice or for research purposes.

Enrollment is subject to space availability and registration is required. Applications can be downloaded and submitted at For more information, contact the STAR training staff at [email protected].
