Description

Caregivers completed age-appropriate versions of the BRIEF (BRIEF-Preschool Edition for ages 2-4 and age 5 years if in preschool, or the BRIEF 2nd Edition for ages 6-18 and age 5 years in kindergarten, PAR Inc, Lutz, Florida).The BRIEF instrument survey behaviours associated with executive functioning (ability to self-regulate, pay attention and organize in real-world situations) and provide clinically relevant information on a wide range of behaviours.

The Shift scale assesses the ability to move freely from one situation, activity, or aspect of a problem to another as the circumstances demand. T scores from 60 to 64 are considered mildly elevated, and T scores from 65 to 69 are considered potentially clinically elevated. T scores at or above 70 are considered clinically elevated.
