“The Modified-Emory Functional Ambulation Profile: Convergent Validity” by Cheryl Anne Enslee

Results of this study will provide information regarding valid use of the m-EFAP as an alternative assessment tool of functional mobility that meets federal regulations for quality and effectiveness ambylation well as practice standards, that is objective, timely, and cost efficient. Convergent Validity in Year Olds. However, these findings provide valuable information regarding the use of the TUG as a screening tool in a school-age population, and show that the TUG is more complex than previously assumed.
