How are clinical interpretations of the profiles made?

Answer:  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 consisting partly of the child's standing on dimensions assessable for children in general and partly of unique characteristics of the child and family.  Specific guidelines and clinical illustrations are provided in Chapter 5.  The Ages 6-18 Module prints narrative summaries of the findings.
