About the resource

Problems with mental performance (cognition) are a common symptom of multiple sclerosis (MS). If they are correctly identified and assessed, one can take concrete measures to support daily life. To do this, you must first be aware of the problem, dare to talk about it and learn about possible problems and their treatment.

About half of people with MS say they have problems with memory, alertness, planning, attention and concentration. All these can be classified under the so called, cognitive dysfunction.

In this booklet, you can read about the causes of cognitive dysfunction, how to evaluate it, and learn measures and small daily tasks that can be done to tackle these symptoms.
