Assessments of Autism Spectrum Disorder encompass all components of a psycho-educational assessment but also include the administration of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule - Second Edition (ADOS-2). The ADOS-2 is a semistructured, standardized assessment of communication, social interaction, play, and restricted and repetitive behaviors. By observing and coding these behaviors, information that informs diagnosis, intervention, treatment planning, and educational placement can be obtained. It can be administered across ages, from toddlers to adults.
