What diagnostic assessment does Love Educational Consulting use for observing behaviors associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?

We use the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2nd Edition (ADOS-2), an industry-leading, empirically tested diagnostic assessment developed by Dr. Catherine Lord and her colleagues.

Who is an appropriate candidate for the ADOS-2?

The ADOS-2 can be tailored to the individual needs of children from age 18 months through adulthood. To qualify for testing, the ADOS-2 requires a minimum developmental level of 12 months and no significant sensory or motor impairments (i.e. blindness, deafness, confined to wheelchair). Module selection for each individual depends on language aptitude within any given speech range or level of fluency and accepted norms for their particular age group.

Why might someone choose the ADOS-2 assessment over a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation?

Some individuals prefer the ADOS-2 assessment as they do not require a referral from their doctor, do not have to wait for an extended period (like 6+ months), and find it to be a more affordable option.

What does the ADOS-2 assessment evaluate?

The ADOS-2 provides a consistent evaluation of communication skills, social interaction, and imaginative use of materials. These domains are vital for identifying behaviors associated with ASD.

Why does Love Educational Consulting value the ADOS-2 assessment?

We appreciate the comprehensive activity structure of the ADOS-2, which enables a thorough evaluation of our patients' behaviors. It aids in identifying any potential signs of ASD. Early diagnosis and intervention are crucial for helping individuals with ASD reach their full potential, making ADOS-2 an essential tool in that process.

Can the ADOS-2 assessment from Love Educational Consulting be used to get a clinical diagnosis?

Yes, we gladly provide your full report of your ADOS-2 results to your physician, psychologist, and/or psychiatrist. While the ADOS-2 assessment isn't the sole contributor to a clinical diagnosis, it is a significant part of the process and can be used to support clinicians in determining a diagnosis and formulating further recommendations. We regularly collaborate with Primary Care Providers to ensure timely diagnoses for our clients.

What is the Social Responsiveness Scale-2 (SRS-2) and how does it contribute to the evaluation process?

The SRS-2 is a tool for identifying social impairment associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and quantifying its severity. It consists of a series of questions that are rated by parents or teachers, which provide a clear picture of a child's capacity for social interaction. At Love Educational Consulting, we use the SRS-2 to provide additional context and information to support our comprehensive assessments.

How does the Adaptive Behavior Assessment System-3 (ABAS-3) factor into the assessment process?

The ABAS-3 measures adaptive skills, which are practical, everyday skills needed to function and meet the demands of one's environment, including the ability to effectively communicate, socialize, and maintain self-care. This information is crucial in creating a complete picture of an individual's abilities and potential areas of need, and is often used in conjunction with tools like the ADOS-2.

Who will conduct my or my child's assessment?

Your assessment will be conducted by our qualified professionals who have undergone rigorous training in administering the ADOS-2, SRS-2, and ABAS-3. Our team works collaboratively to ensure the results are analyzed and interpreted accurately.

How long does the ADOS-2 assessment take, and what should I expect during the assessment?

The ADOS-2 assessment can take between 40 to 90 minutes, depending on the module used. The assessment involves various structured and semi-structured tasks that involve social interaction between the examiner and the person being assessed. These tasks are designed to observe behaviors related to ASD.

Can the results from the ADOS-2 be used for purposes other than a clinical diagnosis?

Yes, the results from the ADOS-2 can be used for educational, work, or other structured purposes. However, it's crucial to first ensure that the relevant entity will recognize the ADOS-2 assessment conducted by us. We always encourage individuals to discuss their results with their primary care physician, psychologist, and/or psychiatrist before making any decisions based on the results.

What are the benefits of using multiple tools (ADOS-2, SRS-2, ABAS-3) in the assessment process?

Using multiple tools allows us to gain a more comprehensive understanding of an individual's behaviors and abilities. Each tool provides different insights, and combining them can offer a more holistic view of an individual's strengths and potential areas of need. This comprehensive approach is invaluable in guiding subsequent support or intervention strategies.
