The name ADOS-2 stands for Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule™, Second Edition. It is a semi-structured, standardized assessment for the diagnosis of Autism.

It’s a standardized assessment tool specifically designed to help diagnose autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in individuals of all ages. However, for individuals older than 18 who are seeking an evaluation for autism, a regular psychiatric evaluation must be completed prior to undergoing ADOS testing.

What is the difference between a regular psychiatric evaluation and an ADOS test?
A regular psychiatric evaluation and the ADOS test (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule) are both important tools in identifying and diagnosing autism.
A regular psychiatric evaluation is a comprehensive meeting between your child and a mental health professional. During this evaluation, the doctor will ask questions about your child’s symptoms, medical history, and daily life to gain a better understanding of how they are feeling and what may be causing any issues.
On the other hand, the ADOS test is a standardized assessment tool specifically designed to help diagnose autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in individuals of all ages. The test is a structured observation of your child’s behavior, communication, and social interaction in a standardized setting and is considered to be a reliable tool for assessing the presence of autism.
It’s important to note that while a regular psychiatric evaluation can be used to diagnose a wide range of mental health conditions, the ADOS test is specific to autism and is considered to be a gold standard for diagnosing autism.
