What is Ataxia?
Ataxia is the name given to a group of disorders that affect balance, coordination and speech. There are many different types of ataxia that can affect people in different ways. Anyone, of any age, can get ataxia, but certain types are more common in certain age groups. For example, people with Friedreich’s ataxia are usually diagnosed in childhood or adolescence.
People with ataxia often lose the ability to walk to speak and to swallow. For many, it will also damage their heart, vision and hearing.
There is currently no cure.
How many people have Ataxia?
The ataxias are rare conditions. Estimates from recent studies show that there are:
- at least 10,000 adults
- about 500 children
