    I am 62 and awaiting assessment. Not looking forward to the frogs and lily pads at all! It’s just embarrassing. It does seem hard to do the test straight after the interview.

    I’m sure you’ll be fine. Just try not to laugh when you get to the frogs 🙂

    I’m gonna pass this assessment next week and my anxiety prompted me to search about it. Now I’m half worried… it will not be done in my mother language and in fact I’m not completely proficient in french, I wonder what they will think of my mistakes. Hope it won’t skew the result too much as I can’t really go back to my country to be assessed.

    Not looking forward to the frog book either.

  4. Hi Ariana,
    The main thing is to just be yourself and try not to worry (difficult I know). After your test, you will be able to laugh about the dreaded frogs 🙂

    Found this site by googling ADOS and frogs! I had my assessment last Wednesday – I absolutely stalled on the frog book, and ended up describing what I saw, rather than constructing any sort of story. About 2/3 of the way through the ADOS part of the assessment, ‘clinician A’ said that they had all the info they needed, and didn’t finish the tests. Diagnosed (at 47) starting with the words “This is probably of no surprise to you…..” – the only thing that could have surprised me is if they’d have said that I wasn’t autistic.
