National Ataxia Foundation

The National Ataxia Foundation (NAF) was established in 1957 to help persons with ataxia and their families. The word ataxia is often used to describe a symptom of incoordination which can be associated with infections, injuries, other diseases, or degenerative changes in the central nervous system. Ataxia is also used to denote a group of specific degenerative diseases of the nervous system called the hereditary and sporadic ataxias which are the National Ataxia Foundations primary emphases. The Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of persons affected by ataxia through support, education, and research. The Foundation has also developed an extensive library of NAF brochures, fact sheets, books, and other educational material relating to ataxia. www.ataxia.org
