Sometimes MS symptoms can progress to the point that they significantly interfere with daily activities.  Maintaining control and independence in everyday life doesn’t necessarily mean doing everything the same way you did it before.  This call will discuss how to navigate the world of assistive technology and suggest ways to modify your environment at home and at work to optimize control and independence.
