Evaluating for Autism Spectrum Disorder Using the MIGDAS-2 with Ashley Arnold

The Monteiro Interview Guidelines for Diagnosing the Autism Spectrum-Second Edition (MIGDAS-2) is a qualitative interview process that helps evaluators individualize the diagnostic process for children, adolescents, and adults. Through systematic interviews with parents, caregivers, teachers and the individuals being evaluated, a narrative description of the autism brain system differences is developed. This session will give participants tools to conduct a sensory-based diagnostic interview with individuals whose communication skills range from verbally fluent to functionally nonverbal using the MIGDAS-2 system and protocols. Participants will learn how to describe individuals in positive and descriptive terms rather than deficit based terminology commonly used in special education evaluations. This session is appropriate for School Psychologist. This training is of no charge for LEA staff within Region One. You must register using your LEA district email to avoid being dropped. Non Region One LEA personnel (such as contracted individuals) will be charged a $35.00 Fee. When paying with a check or money order make it out to "Region One ESC Special Education Department". If you send payment via mail document Attention: Rosario Nava.
