GAIN participants will view and score 2 different ADOS-2 administration videos.  GAIN trainers will review ADOS-2 administration guidelines and will discuss the recorded video in detail during each webinar.  Scoring data collected from all participants will also be analyzed and reviewed during the webinar.  GAIN participants will be able to submit questions, comments and concerns to the GAIN training team which will be reviewed and answered in a separate webinar. GAIN trainers will also review and share relevant research findings with participants. 

GAIN is now offering differential diagnosis trainings. The purpose of the differential diagnosis workshop series is to provide training about issues to consider when attempting to differentiate between ASD and other disorders associated with social-communication deficits and/or restricted and repetitive behaviors. Trainers will present recent research, including studies detailing the use of specific diagnostic instruments in particular populations, as well as clinical case examples and video clips about diagnostically differentiating behaviors. 

GAIN Archived webinars from prior years (2019 & 2020) are available for purchase.
