Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R)

Anyone interesting in applying for an ADI-R Trainer in Training program or for information on future ADI-R Trainings, please contact Marcella Sanchez at mab9254@med.cornell.edu

If you are using the ADI-R for clinical purposes and do not need to use the ADI-R for research purposes, it will be possible for you to purchase a manual, protocols, and training videotapes from Western Psychological Services (1-800-648-8857 or at www.wpspublish.com) and use them in your clinical practice. It is strongly recommended that you purchase and view the ADI-R training videotapes before beginning to use the ADI-R for any purposes. However, if you have any plans to use the instruments in research, you must attend the ADI-R Research Training and establish research reliability with us or with another designated group. If you are a clinician not conducting research, you are welcome, but not required to come to the workshop. Requirements of your profession determine if you should administer the instrument if you are using it for clinical purposes only.

Prior to attending training, you will need to have access to an ADI-R manual and ADI-R protocols. For information about obtaining these materials, contact Western Psychological Services. Educational discounts on ADI-R materials are available for research use and use in training. Authors of the ADI-R training materials, receives royalties when people purchase these materials.

You will also need to make a DVD of yourself administering an ADI-R that you will bring to the training so we may review it and provide you with feedback. This pre-course step applies toward achieving reliability and in turn, also prepares you for your post course reliability tape submission.

After the workshop, you will be provided with an ADI-R DVD and scored protocol to view and score for reliability. You will then send CADB a post course DVD recording of yourself administering the ADI-R and respective scored protocol within three months of your training. For more information on this reliability process, please see PDF iconEstablishing Reliability on the ADI-R.
