This book describes and discusses the assessment and treatment techniques applied by Occupational Therapists (OTs) to sufferers from Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The text begins with basic information about MS and follows this with suggestions for assessment and treatment. Then the specific issues of work, fatigue, leisure, mobility and the home are considered in detail. The needs of people who reach the later stages of the disease are discussed, as are the needs and concerns specific to carers of those with MS. Contact details are provided for many of the services and agencies mentioned in the text. Insight into the impact of MS on people's lives is provided by individuals with MS.
