Abstract:

Diagnostic accuracy of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2 (ADOS-2) in children with psychiatric conditions
 
The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2 (ADOS-2) shows excellent diagnostic accuracy when used with children suspected of having either Autism or language/intellectual delays; however, its accuracy is yet to be established in those with psychiatric conditions. This study will determine the sensitivity and specificity of the ADOS-2 in pediatric psychiatry patients.
