Last month Jordan Peterson, MEd, our Educational Consultant/Advocate (AND Counselor-in-Training-- yes, she has 2 separate roles at Banyan!), and our founder/Executive Director Chantal Hayes, LCMHC-S, travelled to sunny Fort Lauderdale, FL to participate in the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule 2nd Edition (ADOS-2) Clinical Training. We are so proud to be able to offer this clinical tool to our "toolbox" at Banyan Tree and help where needed!
Here are some photos from our time in FL for the training. Our instructor, Jennifer Endre Olson, PsyD, was AMAZING!! Dr. Olson is an internationally recognized Pediatric Neuropsychologist who has worked with Catherine Lord, Ph.D., who is widely recognized as the foremost authority in the early diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders and co-developer of the ADOS-2.
We're grateful we had the opportunity to train with Dr. Olson and are looking forward to providing ADOS-2 assessments soon!
