For Kids: Keep S'myelin


Keep S’myelin: A fun resource for kids about MS

The Keep S’myelin Activity Book is a 28-page colorful, engaging, informative, and reassuring interactive publication to help children and their parents talk and learn about MS together. It is filled with stories, interviews, games, and activities on a variety of topics related to MS, and there is a special separate 8-page section just for parents. Due to the impact of COVID-19 we are not able to mail materials at this time. We encourage you to connect with an MS Navigator regarding downloadable publications and videos. You can also download it here: Kids' section  /  Parents' section

The Keep S’myelin Activity Book replaces the Keep S’myelin newsletters. While the newsletters are no longer published, they are archived below and are available online only.

You and your family may also be interested in Digesting Science, an interactive website about MS designed specifically for children and teens.

  1. Keep S’myelin: Issue 16B — Family Changes for Parents (.pdf)

    Use this issue of Keep S’myelin to help you and your children talk together about the changes MS has brought to your family. Change is difficult for all of us, regardless of age. However, children, in particular, rely on routines; they like to know just what to expect, and for the most part, enjoy the status quo.

  2. Keep S’myelin: Issue 6 — Tools Can Make Life with MS Easier

    any people with MS use different types of tools or gadgets to help them move about, have fun, and do everyday activities. Perhaps your mom or dad has made changes to your house to make it easier and safer to get around. All of these things can be very helpful for someone with MS, but some may seem strange at first.

  3. Keep S'myelin: Issue 3 — About MS & Symptoms (.pdf)

    People with MS may notice that they are having trouble doing everyday things. These troubles and discomforts are called "symptoms."
