Face validity of the Multiple Errands Test with youth in a community setting
The Multiple Errands Test (MET) is a performance-based assessment of the impact of executive dysfunction in the real-world. For youth (age 16-24) who sustain acquired brain injury, distinguishing gaps in typical development of executive function from acquired impairment(s) can be challenging. A scoping review found no studies examining youth performance on the MET. A revised youth MET (yMET) was developed from a focus group and field tested. The yMET was relevant and cognitively challenging for youth, with older youth performing better than younger. Preliminary results indicate that future studies with the yMET are feasible and warranted.
