ADOS-2 Testing

What is ADOS-2

Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule

The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) is an evaluative tool that can make the process of diagnosis easier. Each individual on the autism spectrum is unique, but the test manages to present a standardized protocol for professionals to use in observations.

The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule can be a valuable instrument when it comes to evaluating communication and socialization characteristics commonly associated with autism. The diagnostic tool uses target behaviors to gauge the child’s responses during specific tasks.

The test is very useful tool because it can accommodate people of different ages, and of different abilities. The test is as effective for nonverbal individuals as it is for those who speak fluently. It is appropriate for toddlers, children and adults.

ADOS-2 Evaluation

ADOS-2 is an assessment measure that typically takes about 60 to 90 minutes to complete. The test evaluates the individual’s responses in the realms of communication, imaginative use of objects, social interaction and play skills. The evaluator presents different activities, and measures responses.
