Default Does slow speech precedes slurred speech and disphagia and other bulbar symptoms?

My dad was diagnosed with "definitely MND, probably ALS" with bulbar onset last week. As I learn more about the disease, I also look back to see if I remember when my dad's first symptoms started. It was 9 months ago that he started slurring some consonants for the first time. But it was about 7 years since he started speaking very slowly. Is this indicative of ALS? Or is there a hope he has PLS?

I think I'm just in denial about my dad's diagnosis and looking for a tiniest glimpse of hope. I apologize if the original post sounds silly.

I am bulbar and started out with slowed speech. I had a few other symptoms, clonus in my ankles and body wide fasics and cramping.

One thing is for sure with this disease.......none of our symptoms share the same time line, or exacting sequential similarity.
