The results showed that the investigation group spent the most of their waking hours doing self-care and leisure activities. It was also shown that the majority chose to put their spare time, when all necessary work was done, in recreational activities instead of play activities. The study also showed that there were several activities that the investigation group had difficulty or was not able to do. Many of these activities were leisure activities. There is still need of more research in this area. (Less)
