Description:

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.

Nine aspects of executive functioning are found in the 63 item version of the Parent and Teacher form: (1) Inhibit (i.e., blocking out) distractions; (2) Self – Monitor – monitoring the impact of one’s own behavior on others; (3) Shift – flexibly trying a new approach when necessary and adjusting to changes; (4) Emotional Control – regulating emotions; (5) Initiate – initiating or getting started on tasks or activities; (6) Working Memory – holding a goal and plan in mind; (7) Plan/Organize – planning and organizing an approach to problem solving; (8) Task Monitor – monitoring and checking one’s work, and (9) Organization of Materials – maintaining organization of one’s materials and environment. 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.
