Communication, Motor Neurone Disease and the elderly

  1. Hi,

    I am looking for journal articles that address communication tools (like picture cards) for aged people with motor neurone disease or some form of progressive neuromusclular disease that prevents them from communicating. So far I have come up with zip. So any suggestions for search terms that I can use would be greatly apreciated!! I have a resident who suffers from this and I want to create a communication tool to use with him. He can nod slowly and shake his head slowly and grunt and groan and use his eyes, but that is about it. No hand gestures etc.

    I really hope that someone can help me@
