The Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) is an innovative observational assessment that is used to measure the quality of a person's performance of domestic (instrumental) or personal activities of daily living (ADL). The quality of ADL performance is assessed by rating the effort, efficiency, safety, and independence of 16 ADL motor and 20 ADL process skill items. The ADL motor and ADL process skill items represent universal, goal directed actions that are observed during ADL task performances. ADL motor skills are the observable, goal directed actions of performance that the person enacts during the performance of ADL tasks to move oneself or the task objects (e.g., walk across the floor, transport objects, reach for and manipulate objects, position the body). ADL process skills are the observable actions of performance the person enacts to logically sequence the actions of the ADL task performance over time, select and use appropriate tools and materials, and adapt his or her performance when problems are encountered (e.g., initiate and sequence actions, choose and gather task objects, accommodate actions when problems occur).

More information about AMPS can be obtained on their website: https://www.innovativeotsolutions.com


Louise Gustafsson

Louise trained as an AMPS assessor in the late 90’s and found that it transformed her clinical practice.  She now works as a university educator and researcher at Griffith University in Brisbane and has re-calibrated as an AMPS assessor so that she can use AMPS as an occupation-centred outcome measure in research.  She has recently joined the AMPS faculty for Australasia and is passionate about supporting occupational therapists to develop clinical practices that are occupation-centred.

Marcia Underwood

Marcia is an occupational therapist currently working in a child development service in coastal Northland, New Zealand.  AMPS has been integrated into her work for over 20 years across a range of practice settings, such as community and inpatient mental health services, pain management services, and medical wards.  She has been a member of the AMPS faculty for Australasia since 2005 and really enjoys supporting therapists to gain skill in this empowering evaluation tool.
