Easily completed by a parent and professional who knows the child, the GADS provides documentation about the essential behavior characteristics of Asperger's Disorder necessary for diagnosis. It can be used with confidence in the assessment process, documenting behavioral progress, targeting goals for IEPs, and for research purposes. The GADS has been particularly noted for its ability to distinguish Asperger Disorder from Autistic Disorder. The scale is easily completed by teachers, parents, and others who have knowledge of the subject's behavior or the greatest opportunity to observe him or her.
Validity was demonstrated by (a) confirming that the items of the test are directly related to the definitions of Asperger's Disorder; (b) the subscales are strongly related to each other and the overall diagnosis of Asperger's Disorder; and (c) the GADS scores discriminate persons with Asperger's Disorder from persons with autism and other behavioral disorders. It is the only test of it's kind with this type of discriminative ability. he test was normed on 371 representative subjects with Asperger's Disorder from 27 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, and Australia.
