ADOS-2 Advanced / Research Training
April 27th – April 29th, 2017
This fee includes post course reliability scoring if submitted within three months of advanced/research training date. Prerequisites: ADOS Clinical training completed in person.
If you want to use the ADOS-2 for research purposes, you must establish reliability on the measure. The process involves first attending an ADOS-2 Training for Clinicians and then attending an ADOS-2 Research Training. 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.
Prior to attending training, you will need to have access to an ADOS-2 manual and kit. ADOS-2 kits, manuals and protocols are available through Western Psychological Services at 1-800-648-8857 or at www.wpspublish.com. Educational discounts on ADOS-2 materials are available for research use and use in training. Authors of the ADOS-2, receives royalties when people purchase these materials.
You will also need to make two DVD recordings of yourself administering two different ADOS-2 modules (Toddler, 1 or 2 / 3 or 4), to bring with you to the training workshop so we may review them and provide you with feedback summaries. This pre-course step applies toward achieving reliability and in turn, also prepares you for your post course reliability tape submissions.
After the workshop, you will be provided with DVD administrations of the ADOS-2 and scored protocols to view and score for reliability. You will then send CADB two post course DVD recordings of yourself administering different ADOS-2 modules and respective scored protocols within three months of your training.
