The Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function, Second Edition (BRIEF 2) assesses impairment of executive function in children and adolescents. The BRIEF 2 is completed by parents and teachers of school-age children (5 – 18 years) and by adolescents aged 11 to 18 years – using the Self-Report form to assesses everyday behavior associated with executive functions in the home and school environments. It is designed for a broad range of children for whom there may be concerns about self-regulation, such as those with autism spectrum disorders (ASD); learning disabilities(LD): attention disorders; traumatic brain injuries (TBI); depression; and other developmental, neurological, psychiatric, and medical conditions.

Seven clinical scales are found in the 55 item Self-Report version of the form: (1) Inhibit (2) Self-Monitor (3) Shift (4) Emotional Control (5) Task Completion (6) Working Memory (7) Plan/Organize.
