The APS website has two types of reports for each person's age group, youth and adult. Sometimes it is necessary to convert a report from a youth to an adult. Even more rarely you may need to convert an adult report to a youth report. Both are possible, but understanding why and when are important to know. In both circumstances the steps are the same and shown below. If you're interested in converting a report, it’s important to first understand when you do not want to take the steps below. If the client took the wrong questionnaire do not take these steps. In that case you will need to completely disregard the first report and request a refund, because in that case the questionnaire cannot be used to convert the report. However, for instance, if the client answered the questionnaire correctly you can convert the report successfully to another type of report because their temperament does not change.
