The purpose of this study was to describe participation in everyday activities and social roles, and quality of life for persons with ABI-related oculomotor impairments. Forty subjects were interviewed with a semistructured format. Results of the study describe symptoms, quality of life, and participation difficulties in everyday activities and social roles. Implications of results will be discussed, including areas to assess and the complexity of the challenges with this population.
