History of the AMPS

The development of the AMPS now spans over two decades and has been supported by the American Occupational Therapy Foundation and Association and the National Institutes on Aging. AMPS training courses have been offered in 25 countries around the world. New tasks continue to be added to the AMPS, and the standardization sample is constantly growing. A summary of the changes in the AMPS over time can be seen in Table 14-1, Chapter 14 of the current AMPS manual.
