In addition, users of the ADOS-2 are recommended to attend regular practice sessions to recalibrate their coding skills. This program will provide opportunities to practice observing and coding of each of the ADOS-2 modules. Participation in these sessions requires prior completion of the full comprehensive ADOS-2 training. After registration, participants of this program will receive confirmation information with instructions on how to access the training course materials online. Participants will be expected to access materials and live sessions via the learning management system information provided. In addition, participants will be expected to have access to an ADOS-2 manual, and protocols for modules 1.
