There are many different types of ataxia that affect people in a variety of ways. You can find further information about these types here.
Ataxia UK has also written two publications called Ataxia: what’s that? and Ataxia: a parents’ guide which, among other things, outline the issues to consider when you live with ataxia. You can download the PDFs directly or by contacting the Ataxia UK Helpline.
Although there is no hiding the fact that ataxia does affect people, it does not have to prevent people from having a full, active, and enjoyable life. Ataxia UK is here to give support, so do contact us if there is anything that we can help with. It is completely free to join Ataxia UK, and we encourage anyone to explore the wealth of resources available to them.
