Everyday Tasks Made Easier
With Accessible Technology
By Patricia Kennedy, RN, CNP

(Page 3 of 3)

Wyman and Dykoski both contribute to the Collaborative’s online home, myMSmyWay.com, a free resource for all accessible technology-related information. Here, people can access the “Snapshot” tool, an interactive quiz that provides customized technology solutions based on each individual’s specific needs.

The site also featured user-submitted technology tips, a monthly column on accessible technology authored by leading experts in the field, and information about a number of accessible technology solutions, particularly those that are affordable and even free.

For more expensive accessible technologies, there are resources available in nearly every state that provide financial support for people with disabilities looking to purchase accessible technology. To locate an organization in your state, visit the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America at resna.org.


Patricia Kennedy, RN, CNP, is the Nurse Educator and Program Coordinator at the Heuga Center for Multiple Sclerosis in Edwards, Colorado. She is a member of the MS Technology Collaborative’s professional advisory board and is active in the MS Society.
