The two-day workshop provides an introduction to the ADOS-2 as an assessment tool, and is a first step in the process for establishing reliability. It uses a mixture of large group lecture, demonstration, and scoring, as well as, DVD demonstration of the ADOS-2. Pre-work including readings and videos to watch will be emailed prior to the training. This information will be assumed knowledge for the training. In person training includes morning/afternoon tea and lunch. This training does not include the Toddler Module; see Mindful Website for ADOS-2 Toddler Module training dates and information.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible for this training participants are required to have completed the ASD Assessment Fundamentals and Co-occurring Conditions 2-day training (formerly "Complexities of ASD Assessment"). As our autism training calendar is designed for mental health clinicians working with complex clients, we have made the ASD Assessment Fundamentals and Co-occurring Conditions a prerequisite to ADOS-2 training as it covers all components of a comprehensive ASD assessment. This includes a comprehensive developmental history, consideration of collateral
nformation and issues of comorbidity, differential diagnosis and formulation. The ADOS-2 is one component of an ASD assessment and we would like to ensure that all clinicians attending have a broad understanding of the complexities of ASD assessment.

If you are working in adult mental health, completing both the Adult Autism Introductory and Advanced training will suffice as the pre-requisite for this training. For further information please see Mindful's Frequently Asked Questions website page.

This workshop is planned to be in person at the Mindful Centre. If due to COVID-19 the workshop is unable to be conducted in person,
participants will be given the option of a refund or participating in this workshop as a live webinar. Other costs associated with attending in-person training remain the responsibility of the participant if training is cancelled. In finalising bookings, preference will be given to Victorian participants.
