Welcome to the BRIGANCE Family of Products

For more than 35 years, educators have trusted the BRIGANCE® family of assessment, screening and instructional tools to help them meet the needs of their students. With the Inventory of Early Development III and the Early Childhood Screens III, the BRIGANCE program is more comprehensive than ever before.


Based on the life’s work of Albert H. Brigance, an author and special education resource specialist, the multi-faceted Brigance family of products are a unique set of assessment, screening and instructional tools to help educators meet the needs of their students at every level.

Divided into two broad categories, Early Childhood and Special Education, the Brigance series offers educators, specialists and others a comprehensive look at the development of students from pre-school through to adulthood.
