This manual is organized by daily activities. Under each daily activity, the manual discusses what aspects of that task people with ALS may have difficulty with and provides possible ways to make the challenges smaller or to compensate by using adaptive equipment. The manual displays pictures and/or descriptions of potential equipment solutions, pros and cons of the equipment, where to purchase it, and the approximate cost. The purpose of the manual is to provide people with ALS with an educational resource that encourages them to take an active role in working with their health care professionals in maintaining their own quality of life.
