Description

Description

Of the available standardized diagnostic instruments for autism spectrum disorders, the Autism Diagnostic Observational Schedule (ADOS) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview, Revised (ADI-R) are the most commonly used. Currently, both the ADOS and ADI-R are available in twelve languages, and although Chinese mandarin is the primary language for 1.2 billion people worldwide, it is not available in this language. The unavailability of proper diagnostic tools in Chinese has been one of the major barriers for autism researchers who conduct research in Chinese speaking populations. To fill the gap and facilitate future autism research in Chinese speaking populations, this application will both translate and adapt the ADOS and ADI-R into Chinese mandarin and train Chinese-speaking clinicians to become research reliable on these diagnostic instruments so a later prevalence study can be conducted in this country.
