We’re thrilled to have Norm Geller, Ph.D., leading this new, progressive approach to teaching clinical professionals to diagnose autism using the second edition of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2 (ADOS-2). We recognize that confidence and expertise come from practice and experience, so in addition to a three-day workshop, this program includes three follow-up coaching sessions, live webinars and peer support.
“After all,” explains Dr. Geller, “if we can understand the signs and symptoms of autism spectrum disorders, we can dramatically improve outcomes and quality of life.”
And because referrals can cause lengthy delays, being able to make the diagnosis yourself saves precious time. So, we’ve designed this program for professionals on the front line- psychologists, licensed professional counselors, clinical social workers and speech pathologists- empowering you to intervene at the first suspicion of a developmental delay.
ADOS-2 is the latest version of what was already considered the gold standard for observational assessment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It can be used to evaluate almost anyone suspected of having ASD, from non-verbal toddlers to verbally fluent adults.
Because of the hands-on, interactive nature of this workshop, participation will be limited to 30 people. The three-day initial workshop will be April 1st through April 3rd, 2020, with follow up sessions conducted on May 12th, June & July opportunities to observe live clinics and a final session on October 7th, 2020. All of the scheduled sessions are part of this ADOS-2 Training Workshop.
