Hearing Impairment in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Greetings world,

I would like to open the floor for discussion on Hearing Impairment in ALS. I am a fourth year medical student rotating on Neurology with the Consultant Neurologist, Dr. D. Gilbert. I am currently following a patient managed by the service diagnosed with ALS.

My patient has severe hearing impairment and has compensated by learning to read lips. Has anyone seen or experienced this symptom?
