At CliniKids, we put research into practice with the aim of supporting all children on the autism spectrum. One of the ways we do this is by bringing the world’s best evidence-based supports to Australia – and also to clinicians via our training programs.

ADOS-2 training - July 2023

CliniKids will present Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2) Module 1-4 training in July 2023.

The ADOS-2 is a standardised assessment of the social, play and communication skills of individuals who may be on the autism spectrum. It is considered a gold standard assessment tool in the diagnosis of autism.

The course is open to Speech Pathologists, Clinical Psychologists, Registered Psychologists, Psychiatrists and Paediatricians. Previous experience working with autistic individuals and their families is required.

The July training is running on July 17 and 18 (day 1 and 2) AND July 27 and 28 (day 3 and 4) 9am to 5pm (AWST).

Do you work with children diagnosed with autism experiencing anxiety?

The Coping with Uncertainty in Everyday Situations (CUES) program is designed to address anxiety relating to uncertainty experienced by children and young people diagnosed with autism. This parent/caregiver group program focuses on addressing difficulties with uncertainty, providing parents/caregivers with strategies and tools to assist their child to develop a more flexible approach to uncertainty and reduce anxiety around uncertainty.

The two-session workshops will provide clinicians and autism professionals with a greater understanding of why uncertainty is a particular challenge for some children on the spectrum and how to deliver this group program in clinical settings for families whose children are experiencing these difficulties.

This training is designed for clinicians and autism professionals who wish to deliver CUES© in their service or practice.

CUES training will be held on October 3 and 10, 2023. For more details or to register your interest, check out the flyer.

PACT training - September 2023 and May 2024

CliniKids will present online Paediatric Autism Communication Therapy (PACT) training in September.

PACT training and certification is designed for allied health professionals to provide communication support for parents and caregivers of young children with autism. The evidence-based approach helps parents and caregivers understand and communicate more effectively with their child by promoting the development of social communication.

Who can attend?

Allied health professionals, para-professionals, and other related service providers.

PACT training is on September 11-14. For more details or to register your interest, check out the flyer.
