The purpose of this study was to utilize an assessment battery which combines instruments derived from Cognitive Disability Theory and the Human Occupation Model. Twenty psychiatric adolescent patients and matched healthy controls comprised the study’s subjects. Results show that some of the instruments differentiated between groups., but more importantly, patterns of the impact that cognitive limitations have on psychosocial functioning can be demonstrated. Information derived from both approaches seems to be complementary, and therefore useful in patients’ evaluation.
