Ataxia Clinics

Ataxia Clinics are specialty clinics committed to providing specialized medical care for people affected with Cerebellar Ataxia. Clinics are devoted to the diagnosis, treatment and management of Ataxias as well as prevention and management of complications affecting this group of patients. Patients with the many types of rare Ataxias can benefit from multidisciplinary specialists, which often include genetic counselors, speech therapists, physical therapists and other specialists who are devoted to the care and treatment of those with Ataxia.
