The Thompson Center is now offering autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2 (ADOS-2) clinical and research trainings. All trainings will be conducted by Dr. Stephen Kanne, who is an independent trainer for both the ADOS-2 and the ADI-R. The ADOS-2 is a semi-structured, play based assessment that is widely thought of as the gold-standard autism diagnostic assessment.

The clinical training is a 2 day training focusing on the development and use of the ADOS-2. The research training is a 2.5 day advanced training designed for examiners using the ADOS-2 for research purposes and allows trainees to pursue research reliability.

Dr. Kanne also offers autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) training. The ADI-R training is a 2 day training featuring an administration by the trainer and also allows for trainees to practice administering the interview and receive immediate feedback.
