Adolescent Dissociative Experiences Scale (A-DES)
The approximate age range for this version is 10-21 years. This instrument is in a preliminary stage of validation. Initial results show that a score of 4.8 is the mean for dissociative adolescents with a standard deviation of 1.1. The authors suggest a score above 3.7 would warrant further evaluation for a dissociative disorder diagnosis.
