Patients with ALS find New Ways To Communicate


This ABC news spot features a glimpse at many communication methods from eye tracking on a computer based speech generating device (SGD) to the use of a head mounted laser pointer to target words and letters on a paper communication poster.  You will see people who use a BoogieBoard (a light weight LCD writing board with quick erase button) and  iPAD apps accessed with a Bluetooth keyboard.   These are just of few of the many options for people who need alternative communication and may have limited or no limb function.
