How can I determine if my child meets criteria for Autism?
The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) is a semi-structured, standardized assessment of communication, social interaction, play/imaginative use of materials, and restricted and repetitive behaviors for individuals who have been referred because of possible autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The ADOS-2 is a revision of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, which has been referred to as the “gold standard” observational assessment for diagnosing ASD. Dr. Duke is one of the few private practice professionals in the area trained to administer this assessment. Children as young as 12-months, regardless of verbal ability, can be assessed using the ADOS-2.
Dr. Jacqueline Duke (FKA Dr. Jacqueline Cesaroni) is an Illinois-Licensed Clinical Psychologist and graduate from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology (M.A., Psy.D.) and the University of Michigan (B.A.).
