The mEFAP was evaluated for its interrater reliability, test-retest reliability, concurrent validity, and sensitivity to change during outpatient rehabilitation for poststroke gait dysfunction.

While protile of the modified-Emory Functional Ambulation Profile m-EFAPa quantitative, objective outcome measure of functional mobility, support current standards of practice and meet federal regulations for quality and payment policies, studies supporting the validity of using the test in school-age children with disabilities have been sparse.

These mandates apply to all persons, including children receiving therapy-based services. It was hypothesized that total scores and subtasks on the m-EFAP would fuctional correlated with the Activity Performance subsection of the School Function Assessment SFAwhich is a well-developed instrument used in the school setting. In this dissertation, Dynamic Systems Theory DST is proposed as a framework to assist in understanding the importance of task and environment in assessing functional mobility.
