VADS is a brief, easy-to-administer, standardized test of short-term memory. It is designed to serve as part of an assessment of school-aged children with suspected or known learning disabilities.
VADS consists of four subtests in which numeric sequences involving the digits 1 through 9 are used as stimuli. The child's performance on VADS yields 11 scores that are interpreted individually.
