How are clinical interpretations of the profiles made?

The profiles are intended as standardized descriptions of behavior, as seen by the person filling out the form and compared to reports by other respondents. The information from the profile should be integrated with other data to provide a picture of the child or adult consisting partly of the child's or adult's standing on dimensions assessable for children or adults in general and partly of unique characteristics of the assessed person and family.

Specific guidelines and clinical illustrations are provided in the Manuals. The Guides offer several case illustrations, sample applications in medical and school settings, and guidelines for evaluating profiles.
