Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Schizophrenia affects millions of Americans. It comes with positive and negative symptoms, impaired cognition, functional deficits, and poor quality of life. Presently there is no cure for schizophrenia. Recovery of the affected individuals implies symptom management and environmental supports, which requires an improved understanding of occupational performance in the context of psychiatric symptoms. This study examined sensation, motor, and process skills in relation to symptoms of schizophrenia.
