Default Re: Trouble getting to ALS clinic...

I think the MDA should be able to help you. sounds like she is getting all the services she would get at the clinic. the only thing maybe you need is the speech therapist for a speech aid. have you called the clinic and asked if they could send or recommend a therapist who could come to you so she could get evaluated for a speech device. Would she use one though? sometimes older women do not want to use electronic help. Have you tried an ipad? some folks here use a program on their ipad to speak for them. that may be the easiest thing.
