In brief: Not determinative

No add "test" is determinative, either for kids or adults.
An experienced mental health expert may or may not even utilize a proprietary "test". Adults can easily be evaluated. Such an evaluation includes a thorough history &discussion with the expert, who then can employ 1 or more tests, or not, to provide additional info. In the end, the evaluator should use tests with which he/she has confidence.

In brief: Neurologic disorder

Adhd is a neurologic disorder, & as such has physical findings that are consistent with adhd.
There are several exqmination signs that are proven to show adhd, or show consistency with it. It's a myth that there aren't tests for adhd. Since adhd is a disorder of brain executive function, tests of this can diagnose it. Most doctors are unaware of these neurologic findings.
