    Summary: Occupational therapists frequently work with people who are independent in routine or basic ADLs but who have difficulty with non-routine or complex activities. The WCPA was designed to be useful across a variety of populations that exhibit difficulties in executive functioning or higher level cognitive independent ADLs and can be used to screen for these difficulties to understand the underlying nature of performance problems. Appropriate for use with adolescents and adults, the WCPA involves following and organizing a list of appointments or errands into a weekly schedule while keeping track of rules, avoiding conflicts, monitoring passage of time, and inhibiting distractions. Because performance on multiple-step activities such as the WCPA requires coordinating and integrating various cognitive abilities, this assessment provides the opportunity to observe how an individual manages a cognitively challenging task. The WCPA provides a broad analysis of how a person manages and copes with a complex and cognitively challenging activity. In addition to including a weekly schedule, the assessment features client profiles on error analysis, visual performance, awareness of task difficulty, and pretest–posttest comparisons. A flash drive contains worksheets and scoring materials for both the Adult and Youth versions.
