Product Details

The instrument is a judgment-based (questionnaire) assessment that is completed by one or more school professionals who know the student well and have observed his or her typical performance.


  • Facilitate collaborative program planning for students with a variety of disabling conditions.
  • FHelp elementary school students with disabilities succeed by identifying their strengths and needs in important non-academic functional tasks.
  • FUse criterion cut-off scores to establish eligibility for special services.
  • FEvaluate students on three scales: Participation, Task Supports, and Activity Performance.


Several important features of this model were considered during the development of the SFA:

  • Each level focuses on a different aspect of function.
  • Functional performance reflects both individual and contextual factors.
  • Functional performance is context specific.
  • Function is defined primarily by the outcome of performance rather than by the methods used.


The following resources are available for SFA.
