    The BRIEF-2 is a set of questionnaires for parents, teachers, and now older students (ages 11-18), designed to evaluate executive function from multiple perspectives. Theoretic and statistically derived scales measure such aspects of behavior as the ability to control impulses, move freely between situations, modulate responses, anticipate future events, and keep track of the effects of ones behavior on others. The BRIEF-2 can be used to assess children who have either developmental or acquired neurological conditions such as learning disabilities, attention disorders, traumatic brain injury, lead exposure, pervasive developmental disorders, depression, and other medical conditions.
