Introduction
Feelings, Attitudes, and Behaviors Scale for Children (FAB-C) is aneasily administered self-report instrument designed to assess a range of emotional and behavioral problems in children aged 6 to 13 years. This report provides information about the client’s scores and how they compare with the scores of the normative sample of nonclinical individuals. Separate norms are calculated for boys and girls in two-year age intervals, based on a normative sample of 1988children. See the FAB-C Technical Manual (published by MHS) for more information about this instrument and its results.

Cautionary Remarks
This computerized report is meant to act as an interpretive aid and should not be used as the sole basis for intervention or clinical diagnosis. This report works best when combined with other sources of relevant information (e.g., tests, observations,historical information). The report is based on an algorithm that produces the most common interpretations for the scores that have been obtained. Atypical interpretations must be explored in other ways on a case-by-case basis. The information contained in this report should be treated as confidential.

Summary of Scale Scores and Problem Index
The following table summarizes Michael's scale scores and Problem Index and gives general information about how the person being evaluated compared to the normative group. More interpretive data areprovided later in this report.

Validity Assessment
Lie Scale:T-Score = 50
This scale provides an estimate of whether or not the respondent’s style of responding is truthful and consistent with that shown by other children and adolescents of the same age and gender. Michael’s score on the Lie scale was within the average range, suggesting that he answered the questions in an appropriate manner.

GeneralExamination of the Profile
An overall examination of the profile reveals that two or more scales are significantly elevated. This type of profile is usually categorized by the two highest scales. Such a designation is called a “two-point code”. Two-point codes tend to be useful and robust ways of categorizing individuals into clinically meaningful patterns of behavior. Children with elevated...
