Beware of agencies offering Virtual ADOS testing. Valid administration of ADOS-2 requires face-to-face, hands-on interaction between client & evaluator. This ensures accurate assessment of qualitative social interaction & social communication. Virtual administration of the ADOS-2 would exclude the necessary interaction required to examine those critical characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
While maintaining the fidelity of our assessments, evaluators at TAFA are taking every measure to ensure safety and health of our clients and staff during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
