Abstract

Date Presented 4/19/2018

We performed a cross-cultural comparison of performance on the Weekly Calendar Planning Activity by Israeli and American adolescents to demonstrate its cross-cultural stability. The assessment was not merely translated but also adapted to the cultural context, providing occupational therapists with an ecologically valid measure of performance that can be used to guide culturally sensitive intervention.
