We describe a new approach for assessing executive functions in everyday life and its unique expression in adolescents with epilepsy, using the Weekly Calendar Planning Activity (WCPA). The WCPA provides functionally relevant information on task performance and strategy use that can guide intervention and measure outcomes. We recommend that OTs assess EF among adolescents with epilepsy using a performance-based assessment.
