This On Demand training introduces four assessments for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD): (1) the PDD Behavior Inventory (PDDBI), (2) the PDD Behavior Inventory – Screening Version (PDDBI-SV), (3) the PDDBI Autism Spectrum Disorder Decision Tree (ASD-DT), (4) the PDDBI Adolescent Normative Data Supplement.
The training will discuss autism in detail, including– its diagnostic history, differential diagnostic issues, basic demographics, prevalence, and early signs. In addition, the advantages and disadvantages of subjective vs objective assessments of behavior will be covered.
First, the history of PDDBI, a norm-referenced assessment tool, will be described in detail, following the manual. Case examples will be provided to help the user interpret the many derived scores, and examples of published research studies carried out by the author and others who use the PDDBI will be provided.
Second, the PDDBI-SV, a tool that assesses social interaction problems and social interaction skills, will then be discussed, with a focus on the instrument’s scoring criteria and application using case examples.
Third, the ASD-DT, a screener developed using machine learning techniques to help differentially diagnose cases such as ADHD that have behavioral features that overlap with ASD, will be reviewed and case studies will be provided.
Lastly, we will discuss development and standardization of the PDDBI Adolescent Normative Data Supplement, which enables the user to assess adolescents with ASD.
