GUERRA, Amanda et al. Cross-cultural Adaptation of the Childhood Executive Functions Battery (CEF-B) to Brazilian Portuguese. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.4, pp. 430-440. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to describe the processes of translation and cross-cultural adaptation to Brazilian Portuguese of the Childhood Executive Functions Battery (CEF-B), designed to evaluate executive functions in children and adolescents from 6 to 16 years of age. Six steps were carried out to ensure the quality of the processes: 1) instrument translation into the new language; 2) synthesis of the translated versions; 3) evaluation of the synthesized version by experts; 4) evaluation by the target population; 5) back-translation and 6) pilot study. We sought to ensure the translation and adaptation properties of the CEF-B in terms of semantic, idiomatic, experiential and cultural equivalence between the instructions in the original language and the target language. Results showed preliminary evidence of cultural adequacy and a satisfactory comprehension of the instrument instructions by the target population.

Keywords : neuropsychological assessment; executive functions; childhood; adolescence; Childhood Executive Functions Battery.
