    Vanderbilt Test
    An_267010 posted:
    I have been to therapy when I was beginning high school and my therapist thought I may have ADD (not the hyperactive type). I took the test and although I ranked strongly in some areas they weren't sure about the results and said it was likely just due to my age. I am now in college and the signs are getting even clearer. I know that many females with ADD are not diagnosed when they should be so I decided to try again. I still see a pediatrician (and get to see her until I'm 21). When I told her I want to get retested she told me she strongly suggests the Vanderbilt test as well as one or two more things. Here's where I am concerned, I looked at the test and it seemed meant for younger kids and when I looked it up, it was said to be for kids ages 6-12. I am 19. Is there an adult version of the test? And if there isn't, would my age difference make it likely the test results would be inaccurate in diagnosing me?

    Thank you.
