Don’t miss Dr. Jennifer Greene’s discussion about using base rates, profile analysis, and interrater discrepancies to enhance interpretation of the BRIEF-Preschool Version on Thursday, Feb. 21 from 8 to 9:15 a.m. in the Broadway Ballroom South and Majestic Complex.
Published in 2003, the BRIEF-P is used to assess executive function in children ages 2 to 5 years, 11 months. A single rating form (also available in Spanish) is used with parents, teachers, and day care providers to rate a child’s executive functions in the home and preschool environments.
The instrument helps assess emerging learning disabilities and attention disorders, language disorders, traumatic brain injuries, lead exposure, and pervasive developmental disorders/autism.
The BRIEF-P is part of the BRIEF family of products, which includes the BRIEF2 and the BRIEF-Adult Version. BRIEF instruments have been translated or adapted for use in more than 60 languages on six continents, and the BRIEF2 is the gold-standard assessment of executive function in children ages 5 to 18 years.
