For Researchers & Clinicians
The Minnesota Executive Function Scale, or “MEFS App™,” is a simple, fun-to-use iOS and Android Tablet app that measures Executive Function skills in children as young as age two into adulthood.
The MEFS App™ gives a direct behavioral measure of Executive Function skills.
Originally developed by Dr. Stephanie M. Carlson & Dr. Philip Zelazo for academic research, the benefit to the broader education community was quickly discovered.
Why measure with EFgo™ and MEFS™?
For children to successfully participate in the school experience as engaged and competent learners, Executive Function skills need to be developed from infancy through adolescence along with social-emotional learning. Since children are not born with these skills, they must be fostered, assessed, measured and understood so that each child can meet their full potential. Reflection Sciences has developed cutting-edge technology to easily measure EF, and ensure children will have the best start in school.
Both practical and PLAY-ful, The EF Way to PLAY! Executive Function Activities for in the classroom and at home, features tried-and true games that promote the improvement of Executive Function skills in children. Developed collectively by early childhood education experts, educators, parents, and caregivers, these fun activities promote social emotional learning, mindfulness, and self-regulation.
