Our research focuses on the relationship between augmentative and alternative communication technology use by persons with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease) and their caregiver's perception of role strain. We also examine the relationship between the caregiver's attitude and skill base with augmentative and alternative communication technology and perceived level of role strain.
