4. What if the person does not identify any occupational performance issues?

Answer: If you feel the client has understood the process and does not feel they are any issues, then there is likely no need for occupational therapy intervention at this time. If there are others in the clients environment (e.g., family member) who feel differently, then you may want to do a COPM with them. The COPM is a reflection of a client-centred model of practice. If the client does not articulate occupational performance issues that he/she is interested in addressing, then you will not likely go further with that client.
