Neurologic and functional recovery the Empry Stroke Study. Study Design Based on methodological prpfile, a quantitative, prospective correlational design was implemented to test the hypotheses.

Modified emory functional ambulation profile: While constructs 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.

Overall, this study prompts a revisiting of the topic of informed decision making for therapists, when selecting functional outcome measures.

It was hypothesized that total scores and subtasks on the m-EFAP would be correlated with the Activity Performance subsection of the School Function Assessment SFAwhich is a well-developed instrument used in the school setting.
