Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS)

The AMPS is an innovative observational assessment used to measure the quality of a person’s activities of daily living (ADL)

This is assessed by rating the effort, efficiency, safety, and independence of 16 ADL motor and 20 ADL process skill items, while the person is doing chosen, familiar, and life-relevant ADL tasks. There are more than 120 standardized ADL tasks

An ideal tool for occupational therapists needing a valid and reliable assessment of the quality of a person's ADL performance


School Version of the AMPS

School AMPS is a clinically-useful evaluation tool to measure a student's quality of schoolwork task performance

A naturalistic, observation-based assessment conducted in a student's natural classroom setting, during their typical routine, while the student performs assigned schoolwork tasks

An ideal tool for occupational therapists needing a valid and reliable assessment of the quality of a student's schoolwork task performance without disrupting the normal classroom routine during its administration


Evaluation of Social Interaction (ESI)

The ESI is a dynamic observational tool for occupational therapists evaluating a person’s quality of social interaction.

A valid, reliable and clinical means of evaluating well persons, or persons with any disability, aged 2 years+ at any level of social interaction.

A person’s social interaction is assessed by rating the social appropriateness, maturity, politeness, respect and timeliness of 27 social interaction skill items, whilst the person engages in real social interactions, with typical social partners the person needs to interact with.
