Description

If you haven’t heard of Catherine (Cathy) Lord, you’ve most likely used one of her instruments in your assessments. She’s been researching and developing assessment methods for autism spectrum disorder for about 40 years, and she is co-author of both the ADI-R and the ADOS (and ADOS-2) – two “gold standard” tools for assessing ASD symptoms.

In this interview, Dr. Sharp talks with Cathy about her ongoing research, upcoming clinical tools, and thoughts about the state of ASD assessment. Here are some of the highlights from the discussion:

  • Ongoing efforts to shorten and digitize the ADI-R
  • Differences in assessment of ASD between boys and girls
  • Ways to adapt the ADOS for females
  • The “ideal” battery for ASD assessment
  • The concept of “outgrowing” autism

Target audience:  Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, nurses

This CE program is designated as intermediate.
