What is the ADOS-2 Toddler Module?

The Toddler Module of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) is a fifth module that is specifically designed to assess children with limited expressive language who are between the ages of 12 and 30 months. Similar to the other ADOS-2 modules, the Toddler Module consists of standardised activities in which communication, social interactions, and restricted and repetitive behaviours relevant to the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be observed.

Who is the training for?

This one-day online workshop is designed for those with experience in working with very young children both with and without autism spectrum disorder and with a background in standardised testing.

Who provides the training?

Psychologist Deborah Sweeney has been training clinicians in the use of the ADI-R and ADOS-2 for many years throughout Asia and the Pacific region. Deborah was previously working in autism research at Monash University and now works in private practice providing consultation for complex presentations of autism spectrum disorder.

What does the training include?

This is an introductory workshop specific to the Toddler Module and includes lecture, videos, practice with scoring, and discussions.

Prerequisite training

To be eligible for this training participants are required to have completed the ADOS-2 Introductory 2-day (also known as ADOS-2 Clinical) training. For further information please see our Frequently Asked Questions website page.

What do participants say about the training?

“More than just reading the manual, but real time discussion - very helpful.” (June 2023)

“Great additional training to my ADOS skills!” (June 2023)

“It was nice to be with a group of advanced ADOS users who had the common language and understanding, which made all the questions and comments great to engage in. Deborah has so much knowledge it was incredible listening to her.” (June 2023)

“Well run and well presented course, nice video examples, overall excellent leaning for me, thank you” (April 2022)
