The A to Z of OT: X is For… AtaXia

Ataxia is characterized by a loss of muscle control and coordination, and can affect the whole body or only specific parts.  Ataxia has a pronounced impact on how people go about the activities in their day. Without adequate muscle control and coordination, tasks like getting dressed, walking, and preparing a meal become more challenging.  Learn more about Ataxia and how Occupational Therapists help individuals with Ataxia find functional solutions in our post, Game… Set… Cerebellum.


October is Occupational Therapy Month and to celebrate we will be sharing a new series called the A to Z of OT.  In our attempts to further educate the public about what Occupational Therapists do we will be highlighting twenty-six of the awesome ways OTs provide Solutions for Living.  

We encourage you to follow along and to add to the discussion by highlighting other awesome things OTs help with for each corresponding letter!
