Finding “Can Dos” at Every Level

Starting as a school psychologist in the 1970s, Albert H. Brigance noticed that assessment tools tended to focus on students' limitations. He wanted to change the conversation by emphasizing in-depth skill sequences that would reveal what students know and can do, and provide easily shareable results for families.

From Al’s vision grew our first BRIGANCE product, the Inventory of Basic Skills, and from there, BRIGANCE evolved into an industry-leading publisher of screeners, assessment tools, and instructional materials for Early Childhood and Special Education professionals
