Presented by licensed psychologist and author of the MIGDAS-2, Dr. Marilyn Monteiro.

Delivery form: This workshop is delivered virtually with Dr. Marilyn Monteiro (author of the MIGDAS-2)

The MIGDAS-2 provides evaluators with an efficient method of systematically gathering and organizing the information needed to diagnose autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children and adolescents. Participants in this workshop will learn to engage children and adolescents in sensory-based interviews using the Monteiro Interview Guidelines For Diagnosing the Autism Spectrum, Second Edition (MIGDAS-2) interview system.

The MIGDAS-2 certification program will highlight the use of the MIGDAS-2 visual framework and descriptive language to individualise the diagnosis of autism spectrum differences across age and ability levels. Topics include gaining proficiency in structuring the sensory-based interview using the Descriptive Triangle positive language, and differential diagnosis considerations.

At the end of this workshop participants will:

  • Be able to use the MIGDAS-2 system and protocols to engage children and adolescents in interactive clinical interviews that highlight areas of strengths and differences both remotely and in person
  • Gain essential tools to conduct a sensory-based interview with individuals whose communication skills range from verbally fluent to functionally nonverbal using the MIGDAS-2 system and protocols
  • Be able to use the MIGDAS-2 system to organize observations and describe individuals in positive and descriptive terms
  • Be able to integrate the use of the MIGDAS-2 process with the use of at least three additional measures, such as autism-specific behavior rating scales and the ADOS-2
  • Learn to develop individualised Brain Style Profiles across age and ability levels

Participants will receive a certificate of completion and workshop handouts.
