ADOS-2 for Adult and Forensic Services
This course leads to full ADOS-2 accreditation but focusses its content on the use of ADOS-2 with older clients in an adult or forensic environment. All 5 ADOS-2 modules are covered but with a special emphasis on modules 3 and 4, and on the use of modules 1 and 2 with non-verbal adults. Details
For existing users of the ADOS, this one-day course updates your skills to include the new Toddler Module as well as the new coding and algorithm aspects introduced in ADOS-2. Details
ADI-R Administration and Coding
The 3-day ADI-R workshop equips delegates to administer and code the Autism Diagnostic Interview - Revised (ADI-R) to the level of Research Reliability. The Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) is a detailed parent interview covering early developmental history together with current and early behavioural presentation. The interview covers each area of the autism triad – communication, reciprocal social interaction and repetitive/stereotyped behaviour.Details

Scheduled courses are normally held at the BRS Conference Centre in Newmarket, Suffolk, but we can also bring our training to your site. We have delivered autism training courses across the UK and Ireland as well as Spain, Malta and the US.
