ADOS-G instrument for autism diagnosis

About the ADOS Exam

This web site is designed for researchers exchanging genetic materials for basic autism research. It includes a fairly technical but complete description of the currently favored method for "diagnosing" autism. I expect this test has a significant error rate.
The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule -Generic (ADOS-G) is a semi-structured assessment of communication, social interaction and play or imaginative use of materials for individuals suspected of having autism or other pervasive developmental disorders (PDD).
