 WAIS is not a test specialized in the evaluation of adult ASD and ADHD, but in Japan, WAIS is often used for their evaluation. In WAIS, IQ, cognitive index, and subtest scores are calculated, but the behavioral observations that are useful for diagnosis and support have been carried out according to the standards of each examiner.

 The purpose of this study was to prepare a check sheet for evaluation of ASD and ADHD used at the time of WAIS, and a preliminary behavior check sheet consisting of 40 items was first prepared. After that, a preliminary check sheet was used at the time of 48 WAIS implementations, followed by statistical analysis, and finally 10 items(ASD factor consisting of 5 items, ADHD factor with 5 items)with reliability and validity “WAIS behavior check sheet” was created.
