Spinocerebellar Ataxia Australia
'Ataxia' means ‘absence of order’. People with ataxia have problems of co-ordination. This is because parts of the nervous system that normally control co-ordination and balance are affected. Ataxia is the principal symptom of a group of neurological disorders called the cerebellar ataxias. Most are progressive.
Ataxia may also be a symptom of other conditions such as multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy.
The Support Group in Australia will provide help to all people affected by ataxia, but focuses on the cerebellar ataxias. There are other organisations providing support where ataxia is a part of multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy or other conditions.
Please support us by becoming a Member. By doing so, you'll not only meet others who are affected by Ataxia, but also support research into the condition.
Come along to the next meeting and get to know everyone!!
