The Best 25 Catalog Resources for Making Life Easier.

This very readbale 14-point-type resource should be available in every National Multiple Sclerosis Society Chapter and, ideally, in the library of every self-help group. The information is not only helpful to people with disabilities but to those who care for them. For example, occupational and physical therapists will benefit greatly from knowing that these products are available.

The twenty-five catalog cover areas as diverse as lawn and garden care, exercise, mobility, communication, eating, and recreational activities. Good adaptive equipment makes it possible to live as normal and convenient a life as possible and increases the safety of one's environment. The author covers the many areas of concern extremely well and shows the kind of sensitivity to management issues that only someone having to deal with a disability can adequately describe.

The difficult choice of the twenty-five "best" has been done extremely well. The duplications afford a consumer the opportunity to compariosn shop. These catalogs are also sources of useful gadgets or gifts for card players, stamp collectors, readers, fisherman, and writers with or without disabilities. Anyone who uses the telephone regularly might be interested in equipment that frees the hands or facilitates the accuracy of dialing.

Most of the catalogs are available free of charge by calling a toll-free number included in the description. Occasionally there is a mailing and handling fee of not more than $3.
