Serving Wounded Warriors/Veterans

Leslie Davidson, Ph.D., OTR/L continues to be involved in return to duty evaluation initiatives for Service members who have sustained concussions.  Leslie is a member of a multi-site team who has been awarded a two year grant to conduct preliminary validation of test-tasks known as the Assessment of Military Multitasking Performance (AMMP).  The AMMP is a battery of functional dual- and multitasks that simulate the combined sensorimotor, cognitive, and exertional demands of   Soldiering.  This battery is designed for use after concussion/mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Investigators anticipate that once validated, the AMMP will discriminate between “duty-ready” and “non-duty ready” military Service Members (SM) with mTBI and used in combination with other metrics to inform duty-readiness decisions.
