Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Many symptoms of young adults with multiple sclerosis (MS) affect their age appropriate milestones, such as education, family, and vocational planning. This dissertation study shows how fine-motor skills of young adults with MS (YAwMS) play a role in their occupational performance as they attempt to achieve planned life goals. This mixed-method study addresses how the quantitative results of the study support the qualitative findings through cross-case comparison and merged findings.
