The Autism Diagnostic Interview - Revised (ADI-R) is a useful tool for diagnosing autism or other autism spectrum disorders, planning treatment, and distinguishing autism from other developmental disorders, in persons over 2 years of age.
It is strongly recommended that you obtain training before administering the ADI-R. The ADI-R Training Package DVD allows you to learn administration procedures and practice accurate coding.
The ADI-R DVD Training Package consists of eight DVDs (with a total running time of 16 hours), an accompanying Guidebook, nine Interview Booklets, and three Comprehensive Algorithm Forms.
The DVDs allow you to observe expert interviewers as they administer the ADI-R to parents. The Guidebook discusses each case featured on the DVDs, clarifying coding and scoring decisions.
NOTE: Study of the DVDs and Guidebook is required. While the DVDs may be viewed by multiple professionals, each trainee must individually review the Guidebook and complete the Interview Booklets and Algorithm Forms.
