Event Details

About the course

  • This two-day web-based training is intended to introduce new users of the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) to administration and scoring principles of the instrument.
  • The ADI-R is a semi-structured, standardized parent interview designed to elicit information about social-communication deficits and restricted and repetitive behaviors associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
  • The course will be led by Dr. Somer Bishop, Ph.D., who has used the ADI-R extensively for clinical and research purposes.
  • She will use a combination of lecture and video examples to teach the basics of ADI-R administration and scoring.
  • Trainees will have the opportunity to view and code two full ADI-R administrations.
  • The trainer will lead discussion of each ADI-R code, and will instruct trainees about how to complete the algorithm form and determine ADI-R classification.
  • In addition, the course will cover best-practice guidelines for using the ADI-R as part of ASD diagnostic assessment.
  • Information will be provided about psychometrics and recent research on the ADI-R, as well as instructions for obtaining further training and practice following this introductory course.
