How are clinical interpretations of the profiles made?

Answer: The profiles provide standardized descriptions of functioning, 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 adult consisting partly of the adult’s standing on dimensions assessable for adults in general and partly of unique characteristics of the adult. Specific guidelines and clinical illustrations are provided in Chapter 5. The Ages 18-59 Module prints narrative summaries of the findings that can be adapted for use in evaluation reports.
