ADOS

What is the ADOS-2? 

The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-Second Edition or ADOS-2, is an assessment protocol tool involving a series of tasks and direct observation of behaviors, in order to assess for features of autism or ASD. A trained clinician will interact with and observe an individual’s communication, social interaction, play and imagination skills.

At NeurAbilities Healthcare, ADOS-trained clinicians are available to evaluate your child (or adult) as well as collaborate with your behavioral team. 

Modules of the ADOS-2 

The ADOS-2 is made up of 4 modules (plus a Toddler Module), with just one selected to help diagnose and assess indicators of autism depending on the individual’s age, developmental level and language level:

  • Toddler Module: for children between 12 and 30 months of age who do not consistently use phrase speech
  • Module 1: for children who use little or no phrase speech
  • Module 2: for children who use phrase speech but do not speak fluently; with the ability to walk taken as a developmental requirement
  • Module 3: for children and younger adolescents who are verbally fluent 
  • Module 4: for older adolescents and adults who are verbally fluent

Other Tests That Can Help to Diagnose

Other autism diagnostic measures we use include the ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised), SCQ (Social Communication Questionnaire), and SRS-2 (Social Responsiveness Scale-2).
