Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This study carried out a performance-based task combined with an eye-tracker device for both a control group and a group of people coping with severe mental illnesses. This was done in order to better understand difficulties in task performance and to deepen OTs’ and cognitive scientists’ understanding of client factor and to identify interventions in the most favorable way for the individual. Preliminary results show a difference between the groups in both observational and objective findings.
