July 16, 2010, Newsletter Issue #79: Occupational Therapy

Tip of the Week

Occupational therapy is a necessary supportive treatment to help people function normally, and as independently, as possible. This type of therapy is able to teach people with ALS, new skills to help them take care of themselves on a daily basis. For example, teaching the skill of how to dress alone with weakness in the hand. Occupational therapy is also helpful when the person has to be fitted for wheelchair, or need new techniques to help them conserve their energy and prevent fatigue.
