What Can AT Do for Me?
AT can help you manage your MS. It can also help you even if you’re not experiencing significant MS-related symptoms. Whether it’s surfing the Internet to find information about MS treatments or joining online MS support groups, technology can help to keep you informed and connected.
“I have trouble remembering appointments and taking medication at the right time each day. Since I learned how to set reminders on my computer and cell phone, I have been empowered to better manage my disease.”
– Erinn M., diagnosed in 1997
“Because of my limited dexterity, I can only type with one hand. An accessible technology expert introduced me to voice recognition software. This software allows me to speak instead of type, and as a result I’m able to continue working efficiently and successfully.”
– Keith A., diagnosed in 1993
Even people who aren’t using AT now find it comforting to know what’s available in case they need it in the future.
“It puts me at ease to know that AT exists to help address the symptoms of MS. While I don’t need it now, it’s great to know that it’s there for me in case of that ‘rainy day scenario.’”
– Kristin K., diagnosed 2000
