Final Answer :
B
Explanation :
It is important for a counselor to provide accommodations that do not significantly impact the client's test score, as the purpose of accommodations is to lessen the impact of a disability, not to give an unfair advantage. However, it is also important to consider the individual needs of the client and to ensure that the accommodations are appropriate and necessary for that particular client. Option A is also important, but can be addressed through careful observation and monitoring during the test administration. Option C is not necessarily relevant as accommodations should be tailored to meet each individual client's needs, rather than being based on a comparison to other clients. Option D is important, but should be balanced with professional judgment and consideration of the client's overall needs and abilities.
