  5. 5.  Explanation to Clients Counselors explain the nature and purposes of assessment and the specific use of results in language the client can understand, unless an explicit exception to this right has been agreed upon in advance. Taking reasonable steps to ensure that appropriate explanations are given to the client.
  6. 6.  Recipients of Results The examinee’s welfare, explicit understanding, and prior agreement determine the recipients of test results. Counselors include accurate and appropriate interpretations with any release of individual or group test results.
  7. 7.  comprehensive overview of the client and an interpretation of the assessment results in a contextual manner  to provide assessment information that can be helpful in making clinical decisions and in selecting treatment and educational services  for disseminating assessment information to other professionals  incorporate a wide array of relevant information

  11. 11.  provides a context in which to interpret the assessment     results an overview of the relevant information regarding the client information about the client's past in order for the reader to understand current issues and concerns may come from interviews with the client, interviews with other family members (e.g., parents if client is a minor), or past educational, counseling, or health records focus of the background will vary depending on the reasons for the assessment, but it should include significant past events related to the assessment purpose
