Event Details

Families seeking an autism evaluation often find long waitlists, a confusing process, and a scarcity of information. Florida Autism Center, a division of BlueSprig, is here to help families overcome these barriers so that children can receive the services that they need as soon as possible. We are offering a free ADOS assessment clinic where families and their loved ones can receive an ADOS assessment in Lake City, Florida!

The ADOS-2 Assessment

The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule™, Second Edition (ADOS-2) is a standardized, face-to-face diagnostic tool used to identify the level of risk an individual has of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and our highly trained clinician is able to provide individualized guidance. For children who are suspected of having ASD, the results of this assessment will provide families with the right support and next steps.

During the assessment, our clinician presents a variety of activities to observe a child’s behavior across key developmental areas in relation to their age and current level of expressive communication. This tool is the most hands-on and objective component within an ASD evaluation and is typically conducted alongside additional ASD assessments that are completed by a diagnostician. Diagnosticians can then compare and combine the results of all the various evaluations done to make the most well-informed decision on a diagnosis.

Family Support and Guidance

Upon completion of the ADOS-2, the report is sent directly to the family with the option to schedule a follow-up virtual consultation with the clinician. Families can obtain answers to any questions they may have about the results as well as individualized recommendations on the next steps with ongoing support throughout the ASD evaluation process.

Post-Assessment Process

After your assessment consultation, families should identify a diagnosing provider and schedule an appointment.
