This research was planned to investigate the occupational performance and occupational satisfaction of mothers of children with disabilities, time use, caregiver burden, stress coping, depression and anxiety. Twenty mothers of children with disabilities and twenty mothers of children with typical development were included. The Canadian Occupational Performance Measurement (COPM) to assess occupational performance with participants, The Modified Occupational Questionnaire was used to determine the time usage history of the activities, the COPE Stress Coping Attitude Questionnaire, the ZARIT Caregiver Burden Scale, BECK Anxiety and BECK Depression Scales were used. All data were analyzed statistically and also qualitative analysis of COPM was performed. There was no statistically significant difference between occupational performances of mothers with handicapped children and mothers of children with typical development(p>0.05) but there was a statistically significant difference in occupational satisfaction (p<0.05). The occupational performance was found to be influenced by time use, a statistically significant difference was found in the sleep and child care occupational areas in the time use of the two groups of mothers (p <0.05). It has been achieved that the most affected occupational performance area of the mothers with handicapped children and mothers with typically development is leisure. There was no statistically significant difference in depression, anxiety and stress coping attitudes between the two groups (p>0.05). It was found that mothers of children with disabilities felt more burden (p <0.05). In the qualitative analysis results of COPM, there are 4 themes as "performing self-care activities", "ensuring home administration", "providing time management" and "achieving productivity and social participation" for typical developing children's mothers. In addition to those four themes for mothers of children with disabilities, 5 themes have been reached with the theme of "supporting my child's development". It has been considered necessary to carry out client-centered occupational therapy assessments and interventions for mothers of children with disabilities to assess the occupational performance and to increase occupational participation.
