I know it's out of print, I don't have an ISBN number for it. Is it just a pamphlet or is it book? Anyone know anything about it or have seen it? Thanks - Lisa

Yes, that booklet has been out of print for years. However, my occupational therapist had a similar one that she used for me, years ago. So I think the important thing is to see an occupational therapist as they do know how to deal with the onset of arthritic hands (systemic scleroderma is a form of arthritis; the worst form, actually).

Thank you for your inquiry with AOTA. Unfortunately, the book is out of print and we no longer have any in stock. I googled the title and every site that I visited was out as well. I hope you find it soon.
So if anyone finds a copy, maybe we could share it? I'm gonna keep looking anyway.
