The Monteiro Interview Guidelines for Diagnosing the Autism Spectrum, 2nd Edition (MIGDAS-2) is a sensory-based process for gathering and organising the qualitative information needed to diagnose autism in children, adolescents, and adults.
The process includes guidelines for gathering information from parents/caregivers and teachers, and for conducting a sensory-based interview with the individual being evaluated. The end result is a comprehensive behavioral profile that describes the individual’s distinct way of relating to the world, supplementing assessment scores and informing diagnosis and treatment planning.
The MIGDAS-2 process is designed to facilitate writing a narrative evaluation report and providing diagnostic feedback using language that is easily understood by parents and others involved in the individual’s care.
The MIGDAS-2 interviews require the use of common, sensory-based toys and materials (not included in the Kit purchase). The use of these materials and suggestions for building a sensory-based materials kit are described in the MIGDAS-2 Manual.
The MIGDAS-2 Teacher Questionnaire (pkg 5) provides a detailed set of questions designed to gather a comprehensive narrative about the individual being evaluated from the point of view of his or her teachers. The questionnaire can be used to facilitate an in-person interview or can be completed independently by having teachers write their responses directly on the questionnaire.
