Schedule an ADOS

ADOS

 

The ADOS-2 assessment is the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, authored by Catherine Lord, Ph.D., Michael Rutter, MD, et al., and published by WPS. It is a semi-structured, standardized assessment instrument that includes a number of play-based activities designed to obtain information in the areas of communication, reciprocal social interactions, and restricted and repetitive behaviors associated with a diagnosis of ASD. The ADOS-2 allows you to accurately assess and diagnose autism spectrum disorders across age, development level, and language skills. The ADOS-2 provides a highly accurate picture of current symptoms, unaffected by language. It can be used to evaluate almost anyone suspected of having ASD-from 1-year-olds with no speech to adults who are verbally fluent.
