The BRIEF2 is the second edition of the widely popular rating scale of executive function that continues to be as efficient, comprehensive, and consistent with current models as its predecessor. The assessment includes rating forms for teachers and parents (for ages 5-18), and a self-report form for children and adolescents (for ages 11-18).
