The Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences (FANS) is one of Europe’s largest research groups and one of the few teams in the world bringing together leading experts in brain development and pro and antisocial behaviours across the lifespan. We are part of the IoPPN, world-renowned for the quality of its research and for producing more highly cited publications in psychiatry and mental health (Scopus, 2016) than any other university in the world.
The Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences (FANS) hosts a range of seminars, training programmes and events (see below) open to staff, students and the wider public.
- ADOS-2 & ADI-R Training
- FANS Science Meetings

ADOS-2 & ADI-R Training
The FANS department typically schedule two ADOS-2 and ADI-R courses per year. Due to Covid-19 these courses are now delivered online:
ADI-R: 9-11 November 2020 - Online training course
ADOS-2: 16-19 November 2020 - Online training course
The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule - Second Edition (ADOS-2) provides an accurate assessment and diagnosis of autism and pervasive development disorder across all ages, developmental levels and language skills. ADOS-2 consists of five modules, appropriate for children and adults of differing developmental and language levels, ranging from nonverbal to verbally-fluent. Our 4-day full time comprehensive course is suitable for clinicians and researchers with experience in autism spectrum disorders and covers training in administration and coding of all five modules.
The Autism Diagnostic Interview Revised (ADI-R) is considered to be one of the gold standard clinical diagnostic instruments for assessing autism in children and adults. The ADI-R provides a diagnostic algorithm for autism as described in both the ICD and DSM. This comprehensive interview focuses on behaviour in three main areas: qualities of reciprocal social interaction; communication and language; and restricted and repetitive, stereotyped interests and behaviours. Our 3-day training course is suitable for researchers and clinicians working with children and adults, who also have existing experience with autism spectrum disorders.
