Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a paradigm of clinical care for its characteristics of progression, reduced life expectancy, loss of autonomy, lack of effective etiological therapies. The interdisciplinary approach proposed for some time in the management of patients with ALS provides an effective model of care, useful also for other pathological conditions. It is focused on the patient and his family, around which revolve all the professionalism, with the same role and importance. In the evolution of these models, research improvements, in particular genetic and neuropsychological discoveries become crucial: therefore the approach to the patient has become increasingly complex. In this work the main areas of interdisciplinary intervention will be considered, reporting different experiences, in particular of the Torino Expert Regional Center for ALS.
