Seminar: Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS)

The Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) is an observational assessment that allows for the simultaneous evaluation of motor and process skills and their effect on the ability of an individual to perform complex or instrumental and personal activities of daily living (ADL). It is used to establish client rehab goals and to plan interventions. The AMPS measures the quality of a person’s ADL performance by rating the effort, efficiency, safety, and independence while a person actually performs chosen, familiar, and life-relevant ADL tasks which include bathing, dressing, meal preparation, house cleaning tasks, outdoor maintenance tasks, and shopping. The AMPS comprise 16 motor and 20 process skill items.The AMPS is a standardized observational assessment administered by an AMPS certified Occupational Therapist
