  • A look at our recent ADOS-2 clinical workshops

    This month our 3rd ADOS-2 Clinical Workshop (now endorsed by the College of Occupational Therapists) was held at our London offices.

    It went ahead despite the floods, train lines being swamped and the prospect of yet another tube strike! Luckily we all managed to get there by hook or by crook, so a BIG thank you to everyone who attended.

    With a full house, Fiona Scott, Managing Director of Spectrum Specialist Con
    sultancy Ltd, and an accredited International ADOS (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule) and ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised) Trainer, ran an enthusiastic two day workshop to an animated and responsive classroom of Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists. The workshop covered areas including, administration and scoring, operationalising diagnostic criteria for ASD; and gave attendees the opportunity to practice scoring with guidance from Fiona.

    With our feedback forms (we always welcome honest and informative feedback), we found that these sessions have been well received and informative. We also learnt that further advanced training sessions would be greatly appreciated by our customers. Something we are keen to look at - so watch this space.

    Our next workshop is in May and we are already taking bookings, so do visit our website to secure your spot.

    Here are just a few of the comments we received:  

    “Excellent delivery - a lot of clinical material and important points covered very clearly...Great to have a presenter with broad research and clinical knowledge”

    “I found the two day course very enjoyable and felt I learnt everything I needed to use the ADOS-2”

    “Extremely well presented and designed course. It fully met my expectations.”
