Sponsored by the Institute’s Indiana Resource Center for Autism, ADOS 2 will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to learn directly from a co-author of the ADOS 2 Pam DiLavore.

She holds a doctorate in Special Education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has worked in the autism field since 1978 as a teacher, researcher, and TEACCH autism specialist. She participated in the development of the ADOS while working with Dr. Catherine Lord as the research coordinator on a longitudinal study of the early identification of autism.

  • To learn about the semi-standardized administration of the ADOS 2;

2015 Indiana Disability Poll

This year's Indiana Disability Poll is asking Hoosiers about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As the 25th Anniversary of the ADA approaches, we are interested in finding out from people with disabilities, family members, disability advocates, and interested others about their opinions on ADA implementation in Indiana and what's needed moving forward. The Disability Poll is anonymous, and should take you about 10-15 minutes to complete. 
 
For questions or more information, or alternative formats, contact Matt Norris at the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community at cwlab@indiana.edu or (812) 855-6508. The Indiana Disability Poll is a collaborative effort between the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community at Indiana University – Bloomington and the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities
