Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised (ADI-R) Clinical Training

Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised (ADI-R)
Clinical Training – October 8-10, 2014

Hosted by Learning Disabilities Association of Saskatchewan

The ADI-R is a semi-structured, standardized measure of communication, social interaction, play, and restricted and repetitive behaviours synonymous with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It is widely considered a ‘gold standard’ measure for gathering important developmental and behavioural information for assessment and diagnosis of ASD. Developed by some of the foremost researchers and clinicians, the ADI-R provides a highly accurate evaluation of current and past behaviour in individuals from 12 months of age to adulthood, from individuals who are nonverbal to individuals who are verbally fluent. By completing the standardized interview with an informed caregiver, you can obtain information that informs diagnosis, treatment planning, and educational placement.

– Learn of the differences between clinical and research use of the ADI-R
– Learn how to administer the semi-structured interview
