AMPS-2 Interpretation and Documentation

Build on your Assessment of Motor and Process Skills with this two day course

AMPS-2 Interpretation and Documentation days are intended to build on AMPS skills developed from using the assessment tool with clients in any area of clinical practice or research. Many occupational therapists attending an AMPS course focus mainly on administering and scoring the AMPS. Later as skills in administering the assessment increase, there is a need to learn more about interpreting, reporting and documenting AMPS results. These two separate but linked follow-up days are intended to fill this gap. They can be attended separately (day one only) or together - contact busdev@yorksj.ac.uk for further information.

  • Location – York campus
  • Duration – Two study days
  • Facilitators - Sue Mesa (AMPS trainer)

Course information

By attending this course you will learn

6 hours (per day) of course instruction facilitated by an AMPS faculty instructor.  The two days are intended to build on AMPS skills developed from using the assessment tool with clients in any area of clinical practice or research.

Following attendance at the AMPS-2 Day 1, participants will be able to:

  • Review their skills in administering and scoring the AMPS in a reliable manner
  • Interpret the AMPS ability measures reported on the AMPS graphic report from criterion and norm-based perspectives
  • Use the AMPS reports to plan and guide occupational therapy intervention (direct and consultative) using the OTIPM (Occupational Therapy Intervention Process Model)

Following attendance at the AMPS-2 Day 2, participants will be able to: 

  • Interpret the AMPS ability measures reported on the AMPS graphic report from criterion and norm-based perspectives
  • Use the AMPS reports to plan and guide occupational therapy intervention (direct and consultative) using the OTIPM (Occupational Therapy Intervention Process Model)
  • Document AMPS results using the AMPS graphic report, AMPS Results and Interpretation Report and Skill summary report in their own work-based format
  • Give verbal feedback about the AMPS results

This course is designed for Health professionals who have previously attended the five day AMPS-1 course.  AMPS-2 Interpretation and Documentation days are two linked follow up days intended to build on AMPS skills developed from using the assessment tool with clients in any area of clinical practice or research. The second of these two linked days is intended to provide an opportunity for occupational therapists to work through the interpretation and documentation process using one of their own clients as the case study.
