Excellent course that has broadened and deepened my knowledge and understanding of ASD. I left feeling competent to use the ADI and ADOS within my clinical practice. At times I found the pace slightly slow and struggled with group discussions where we spent long periods of time debating coding (i.e. time could have been better spent). Although these conversations are always helpful, as someone who is very familiar with psychometric testing I found the pace quite slow and repetitive. However I think this was the nature of the group but thought it might be worth considering in future mixed group trainings.
I really enjoyed the training, but I was missing more information about toddlers and first module and overall attention to younger children. And I am still waiting post-course materials. The trainer said that she will share with us her slides and homework.
The combination course allowed for the opportunity to understand how items/coding on the ADOS overlap with questions on the ADI-R. The videos and live case study was an excellent way to provide experience first hand. Carol’s knowledge of both autism and administering the test is insightful and informative and she ensures the highest quality training for her students. I learn so much every time we work together. Very much enjoyed and can’t wait to be able to start to use these measures to support families/young people in in need of the diagnosis. Venue was also lovely. Couldn’t have been an easier more enjoyable week with very nice professional people. Thank you BWA!
