Newly Diagnosed or Needing Help for the First Time?
If you or a loved one has been recently diagnosed with ALS or have not connected with us before, please take a minute and register with us. Our Care Services team will then connect with you to share the programs and resources available through ALS Texas.
ALS-related equipment can be very expensive, so we have a bank of durable medical equipment and speech generating devices (SGDs) available to loan free-of-charge to ALS patients. Please contact Marshall Nelson, our Equipment Program Manager, and he will recommend the best equipment to fit your needs.
