Mom's bulbar symptoms -PLEASE HELP

HI,
I posted yesterday and really could use some help. My mother has bulbar symptoms of ALS. Her neurologist is sending her to an ALS specialist to confirm his suspicions. If she has bulbar onset, is that a faster progressing form of ALS? I'm trying to prepare myself when I take her to this specialist next week. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
