Andrea Rodríguez

I was born in Bogotá. When I was 14 I moved to Spain with my family. I’m graduated in Psychology at the University of Seville. From a young age, I’m interested in neurodiversity and functional diversity. I worked as a volunteer in the ‘Asociación de Padres de Personas con Autismo (Autismo Sevilla)’, where I became a cognitive-behavioural therapist for children and adolescents with autism. I moved to Barcelona in 2010. From 2012 I collaborate with the ‘Centro de Orientación y Asistencia al Desarrollo Integral (COADI), where I’m part of the diagnosis team, and I coordinate the interventional team responsible for give support to people with divergent development paths and to their families.

I’m specialised in:

  • Neuro-development disorders and quality of life for people with intellectual disability.
  • Interventional global models focused on the family empowerment for neuro-development disorders, suchas: Denver Model (ESDM), Social Communication, Emotional Regulation and Transactional Support (SCERTS) o Hanen (I it takes two to talk and More Than Words).
  • Evaluation of the functional communicative abilities and the implementation of Augmentative and Alternative Communicative System (SAAC).
  • Evaluation and diagnosis of neurodevelopment ADI-R (semi-structured interview for the autism diagnosis) and ADOS-2 (structured observation for the autism diagnosis- offered by Catherine Lord, Barcelona 2013) and A-ADOS (structured observation for the autism diagnosis adapted to adolescents and non-verbal adults – San Francisco University, UCSF, California 2017).
