Potential Resources for Children and Teens Impacted by ALS

This pamphlet lists potential resources and suggestions to help children and teens who are impacted by ALS. The suggestions are based on our collective experience working with people who have had ALS and their families. Please reach out to your Social Worker or Mental Health clinician if you have any questions or specific concerns about your children or grandchildren.
