How can we help children to understand Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple SclerosisMeet Maria – a woman with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Maria tells the story of her family holiday which was interrupted when she began to feel dizzy, exhausted and weak. She explains how this led to her diagnosis and describes what MS is, how it affects her daily life and what others can do to help. Her story is taken from Can I tell you about Multiple Sclerosis? and is an ideal introduction to MS for children aged 7 +, as well as older readers. It will help family, friends and carers to better understand and explain MS and is an excellent starting point for group discussions.
