NEW in 2017! The BRIEF 2 Interpretive Guide
The BRIEF 2 Interpretive Guide is intended to facilitate the use of the BRIEF 2. Written by the authors of the BRIEF 2 in a straight-forward, reader-friendly style, this durable hardcover book is designed to assist school psychologist as they assess, plan interventions for and monitor students with executive dysfunction.
Features and Benefits
- Provides an overview of the BRIEF 2 model of executive function that leads to assessment and intervention.
- Reviews the development, reliability and validity of the BRIEF 2.
- Follows two case examples of students with executive function difficulties and describes screen, basic and advanced interpretation.
- Illustrates the fundamental steps to interpreting scores and introduces optional interpretive steps.
- Provides a step-by-step guide to interpret scores and a parallel sentence-by-sentence guide to help practitioners write findings in reports using language that is concise, accurate and clear to parents and teachers.
- Describes effective executive function intervention models and programs.
The BRIEF 2 is an enhanced rating scale of executive function that continues to be as efficient, comprehensive and consistent with current models of executive function as its predecessor but now includes a quick screener and enhanced features.
The BRIEF 2 includes as 12-item screening version and updated norms for the Parent, Teach and Self-Report forms based on a large, diverse sample.
Features and Benefits
- Parent, Teacher and Self-Report forms are now discussed in one Manual and have increased parallel structure. This content overlap, combined with the presentation of rater discrepancy base rates, makes examining multiple rater perspectives easy.
- Contains more concise scales, which reduce the burden on the parent, teacher and adolescent respondent.
- Increased parallelism in tem content, with most items shared between the Parent Form and Teacher Form and approximately half of the items also shared with the Self-Report Form.
- New 12-item Parent, Teacher and Self-Report (for ages 11-18) Screening Forms quickly indicate whether executive function assessment is needed.
- Improved empirical scale structure includes separate Task-Monitor and Self-Monitor scales.
- In addition to the two validity indicators on the original BRIEF, a new Infrequency Scale helps identify unusual responding.
- No new items were added to the clinical scales, allowing for consistency of data collection between the BRIEF and the BRIEF 2.
- Large, nationally stratified standardisation sample is matched by age, gender, ethnicity and parent education level to U.S. Census proportions.
- Improved internal structure with scales supported by factor analysis and three indexes consistent with widely accepted theory: Behaviour Regulation, Emotion Regulation and Cognitive Regulation.
- clinical data provides support for evidence-based assessment and interpretation of clinical profiles.
- New reliable statistics make it easy to measure the significance of change in scores over time.
