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. 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.
