ADI-R

Overview of ADI-R Training

Professor Cory Shulman is a certified trainer for the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R). The ADI-R, authored by Catherine Lord and colleagues, is a semi-structured standardized interview that provides a method for gathering comprehensive information about individuals suspected of having an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The interview questions, which are administered to caregivers, cover several content areas including early development, language acquisition/possible loss of language or other skills, current functioning in regard to language and communication, social development and play, as well as restricted interests and repetitive behaviors. 
The information collected form the parents/caregivers is organized and coded according to five domains that are directly associated with a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

These domains include:

(1) Early development

(2) Language and communication

(3) Reciprocal social interaction

(4) Play/Imagination

(5) Stereotyped behaviors and restricted interests

(6) Other behaviors.

Throughout the workshop, the interview will be taught using a variety of teaching methods, including lectures, videos, scoring discussions and live administrations. 

Professionals including clinical psychologists, school psychologists, speech/language pathologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, social workers, graduate students, and other autism specialists are invited to register for an ADI-R training.

The ADI-R training is two days and costs: 1,800 NIS

Please note that there will be no refund once the payment is processed.
