ADOS-2 Training Program

ADOS-2 is the latest version of what was already considered the gold standard for observational assessment of autism. ADOS-2 can be used to evaluate almost anyone suspected of having autism, from non-verbal toddlers to verbally fluent adults.

CA offers this new, progressive approach of teaching clinical professionals to diagnose autism using Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2) through virtual workshops. We recognize that confidence and expertise come from practice and experience, so in addition to a three-day workshop, this program includes one follow-up coaching session. Because of the hands-on, interactive nature of these workshops, participation is limited.

View our ADOS-2 Trainings to register for the next available workshop.

Autism Resource Database

Our resource directory includes everything from camps and hair salons for autistic children to preschools with behavioral supports.


We publish quarterly newsletters and periodically send out important information around advocacy, the annual autism conference, and more. Please be sure to check all of the topics that are of interest to you so you’ll receive the most relevant news. You can change your preferences at any time by clicking on the “update profile” link in any email we send you.
