I took a test four years ago to see if I had AS. Basically, all I had to do was fill out a long questionaire and do all sorts of these easy things, like saying the number they said backwards, as well as hands on stuff. Don’t worry, it’s very easy and pretty fun, too! :)

Do you know where I can find an online version of the test?

I don’t think there is a true online one. All the ones I’ve seen are fake and give false answers. It’s best to take a real one.

Krex, I think you're thinking of these guys. http://www.gwar.net/


Other than that, I have no idea of what the Guar test is either, sorry.

Lightning88,

Wow, that sounds like it might have a test for liking puzzles, and visualizing. I could see how I might have trouble with that now, though I wouldn't have when I was younger. Then again, I AM still making observations like the answer to krexs question!

Krex,

Gua was the name of the first bad aliens in the "first wave". Guald was the name of the first bad aliens in Stargate.

THANKS! You're RIGHT! GARS is for normal autism, and I guess to see if you should take:

GADS=Gilliam Asperger's Disorder Scale is for Aspergers.

I LIKE cookies! I wish the internet could deliver them. OH MAN, DARN Heisenberg!! !! !! ! 8-(

BTW I forgot to say. The cost, to the examiner, for the OFFICIAL test(Straight from the originator) with the manuals, etc... is only about $2 for GADS(~$100/50) and $3(~$150/50) for GARS! I wonder how much they charge for labor and overhead!

I actually toyed with buying it myself, just to see where I score(Even though it is for ages 3-22.). ALAS, they have a qualifying questionare, and I can't buy it. 8-( Oh well.

Steve

Just relax and be yourself. You are who you are, there's no passing or failing as long as you do your best to give honest answers.
