Autism training set for Oct. 22-23 at IMESD

Release Date: 

InterMountain ESD will host a training Oct. 22 and 23 to help school district staff learn the information necessary to successfully administer Autism Assessments starting in July 2013.

The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) training provides an instrument already viewed as the "gold standard" for observational assessment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The two-day workshop, which runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Oct. 22 and Oct. 23 at the IMESD's Lodgepole/Ponderosa room, will teach participants how to use the ADOS-2 to assess and diagnose autism. The training is ideal for those holding degrees in either school pschology, speech-language pathology, and/or special education.

Experienced workshop leaders will describe the ADOS-2 model and demonstrate administration and scoring, operationalizing diagnostic criteria for ASD. Participants in the workshop will have the opportunity to practice scoring while observing the instructor administer the ADOS-2 to a child with ASD.
