The Diagnostic Interview for Social Communication Disorders (DISCO)

The Neurodiversity Centre is proud to announce that we will be hosting the first ever DISCO training in South Africa. Developed by Dr Judith Gould and the late Dr Lorna Wing, the DISCO is considered to be one of the international “gold standard” diagnostic instruments. In addition to providing a diagnostic framework, the DISCO also guides intervention and treatment planning, making it an exceptionally valuable instrument.

We are honoured to have Dr Judith Gould and Dr Sue Sheppard from the Lorna Wing Institute (National Autistic Society) in London, UK, come and present this training in the Western Cape.

This prestigious training is aimed at professionals working in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders, such as Psychologists, Psychiatrist and Paediatricians. The training will take place over two modules, the first being 6-7 December 2017 and the second provisionally 12-13 March 2018. Delegates will be required to conduct a practical component, for formal assessment by the Training Team, in between these two modules.

Further details will follow as soon as CPD accreditation has been confirmed.
