Abstract The ability to communicate effectively is a crucial factor in both psycho-social and physical adaptation to the changes which occur as ALS/MND progresses. At a time when communication might offer the most effective means to reach equilibrium it is often not readily available. As ALS/MND advances, many individuals experience progressive erosion of physical access to communication with related problems of altered communication style.

L'aptitude à communiquer efficacement est un facteur décisif de l 'adaptation psychosociale et physique aux changements qui surviennent au fil de l'évolution de la SLA / MMN. Lorsque la communication pourrait constituer le moyen le plus efficace de parvenir à un équilibre, elle est souvent difficile à établir. Au cours de l'évolution de la SLA / MMN, de nombreuses personnes subissent une érosion progressive de l'accès physique à la communication liée à des problèmes de modification du style de communication.
