Suitable for professionals intending to use ADOS-2 for clinical purposes. The course caters to both professionals with no prior experience of the ADOS and those who would like to update their previous training.
For those who are new to ADOS-2, this course provides a thorough introduction to the assessment. For those who have some previous experience or training, this is an excellent in-depth refresher on the new features of the assessment. The course is not suitable for those intending to use the ADOS-2 for research purposes or professionals working with toddlers under 30 months who may require training in the Toddler Module.
Zoom links for each day’s live session will be emailed to you in advance and there will be a registration each morning as you log on. You will receive the course resources for each day’s session: ADOS-2 Modules and the slides. The sessions are completely interactive and you will be able to ask questions/hear other participants’ questions. It is very user friendly, even for people who may not be so comfortable with technology. If you have any issues or questions with logging on we will support you.
Delegates will be required to view four pre-recorded lectures in advance of the course, which provide essential background information. This will enable delegates to spend more time on the active parts of the training such as discussions about ADOS coding and case discussions. Each lecture lasts approximately one hour.
Delegates will receive all course materials in a digital format ahead of the course and so will need access to a printer to print these off ahead of time.
Delegates will be awarded a Certificate of Clinical Reliability on completion of the course and the associated post-work. The post-course assignment requires delegates to view and code a film which will be sent by the trainer to the delegates via a link. The film is confidential and there will be a time limit of 3 months in which to complete this task before the film expires. The trainer sends a coding spreadsheet to complete which is to be emailed back to the trainer, who will provide detailed feedback on the delegate's reliability rates and make recommendations for improvement if necessary. The assignment should take no longer than 3 and a half hours to complete and delegates have up to three months to return their work. Accreditation is provided only upon completion of the post-course assignment.
*Please note that bookings can only be confirmed on receipt of payment / purchase order. These are virtual courses conducted online via Zoom. As with any third party application, we urge delegates to become familiar with the platform and ensure they agree with any terms and conditions before signing onto the course. Note too that extra shipping costs (for course materials) may apply for delegates outside the UK.
