The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule - Second Edition (ADOS-2) is a semi-structured assessment of communication, social interaction, and play/imagination for individuals suspected of having autism or other pervasive developmental disorders. The online ADOS-2 course consists of five modules, each of which is appropriate for children and adults of differing developmental and language levels, ranging from nonverbal to verbally-fluent.

This comprehensive 4-day online course (delivered via Zoom), is suitable for clinicians and researchers with experience in autism spectrum disorders, and will cover training in administration and coding of all five modules.

Date: Monday 24th - Thursday 27th October 2022
9.30am - 4.30pm (registration from 9.15am on first day of the course)
£995.00. Cost includes a copy of each of the five module protocol booklets and teaching slides.
Course Trainer: Emma Woodhouse

Additional Information:
After completion of the four-day ADOS-2 training delegates will receive a certificate to say that they have attended an official training course. Delegates often ask how soon they can start using the ADOS-2, and how they can become reliable in administration and coding. Administrators are only considered ‘reliable’ in their coding when they consistently achieve a minimum of 80% agreement with consensus scores. If you are below this level of reliability, it will impact upon the validity of the assessment tool. The time and work involved in becoming reliable varies from one individual to the next and depends on existing experience.

The ADOS-2 manual recommends that administrators attended reliability meetings on a regular basis to check that they are maintaining reliability. If you would like to receive further information about carrying out assessments and online reliability workshops and/or individual supervision, please email Emma Woodhouse (

In clinical work, it is expected that whoever gives the diagnosis of ASD is trained in differential diagnoses (usually psychiatrists, pediatricians and clinical psychologists). However, other professionals are often involved in different aspects of the assessment process (for example, doing the ADOS-2/ADI-R) and this is common practice within the NHS.
