Welcome to Fountain of Hope, a dedicated community organization focused on providing support and assistance to individuals and families affected by autism. As part of our commitment to offer comprehensive resources, we proudly offer the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), a valuable tool used for the assessment and diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The Importance of ASD Diagnosis

Understanding and diagnosing autism is crucial for early intervention and support. The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule is widely recognized and utilized as a gold standard assessment tool by professionals in the field. It helps in gathering essential information to guide effective interventions, treatment plans, and support services.

What is the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule?

The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, commonly referred to as ADOS, is an interactive assessment designed to evaluate social communication, play, and restricted or repetitive behaviors associated with ASD. It involves structured activities that allow professionals to observe and analyze a person's behaviors and responses.

How Does ADOS Work?

During an ADOS assessment, a trained clinician administers various tasks and activities tailored to the individual's age and developmental level. These activities provide opportunities for the clinician to closely observe social behavior, communication abilities, imaginative play, and repetitive behaviors.

ADOS is divided into different modules based on the individual's age and communication skills. Each module focuses on different aspects of social interaction and communication. The results obtained from ADOS help in determining whether an individual meets the criteria for ASD diagnosis.
