Process skills

Question Answer
Process skillsoccupational performance skills observed as a person 1)selects, interacts with, and uses task tools and materials 2)carries out individual actions and steps, 3)modifies performance when problems are encountered

notices/respondsresponds appropriately to nonverbal task-related cues AND the spatial arrangement and alignment of task objects to one another AND cupboard doors and drawers that have been left open during task performance
Adjustseffectively goes to new work spaces AND moves tools/materials out of current work space AND adjusts knobs/dials/water taps to overcome problems with ongoing task performance
Accommodatesprevent ineffective task performance
Benefitsprevents problems with task performance from recurring or persisting
