The Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) is used to measure how well a client performs familiar activities of daily living (ADL). The AMPS can be used with any client, regardless of diagnosis or age, as long as the client is at least the developmental age of 2 years and is familiar with performing some ADL tasks. There are over 125 ADL tasks included in the AMPS, from very easy self-care tasks to multi-step domestic tasks (including outdoor tasks and shopping).
