The BRIEF consists of two rating forms — a parent questionnaire and a teacher questionnaire — designed to assess executive functioning in the home and school environments. The BRIEF is useful in evaluation children with a wide spectrum of developmental and acquired neurological conditions, such as:
- Learning Disabilities
- Low Birth Weight
- Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
- Tourette’s Disorder
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Pervasive Developmental Disorders/Autism Spectrum
Each BRIEF questionnaire contains 86 items in eight nonoverlapping clinical scales and two validity scales. These theoretically and statistically derived scales form two broader indexes: Behavioral Regulation (three scales) and Metacognition (five scales), as well as a Global Executive Composite score. Factor analytic studies and structural equation modeling provide support for the two-factor model of executive functioning as encompassed by the two indexes. Validity scales measure Negativity and Inconsistency of responses.
The BRIEF has high internal consistency and test-retest reliability. Convergent validity was established with other measures of inattention, impulsivity, and learning skills. Normative data was based on child ratings from 1,419 parents and 720 teachers from rural, suburban, and urban areas, reflecting 1999 U.S. Census estimates for SES, ethnicity, and gender distribution. Separate normative tables for both the parent and teacher forms provide T-scores, percentiles, and 90% confidence intervals for four developmental age groups by gender of the child. Clinical sampling included children with developmental disorders or acquired neurological disorders (e.g., Reading Disorder, ADHD subtypes, TBI, Tourette’s Disorder, Mental Retardation, Localized Brain Lesions and High Functioning Autism.
The BRIEF Kit includes the Manual, 25 each of the Parent and Teacher Form Questionnaires and 50 each of the parent and Teacher Form Scoring Summary/Profile Forms.
