Support for Professionals

One of the A-T Society’s key roles is to provide information and support to the health, education and social care professionals who are working with people with A-T and their families. Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T) is a very rare condition with an estimated 200 cases in the UK. Most professionals will have limited knowledge or be unaware of the condition when a person is referred to them. Infact, they may not see more than one person with A-T during their professional career.

Many thanks for coming to our staff meeting. It was very informative and everyone who attended felt that it was a valuable insight into how we can support Orla through her years at the school. I don't think that anyone had realised until then the complexities of her difficulties, and having the meeting has made everyone far more aware of her needs on a day-to-day basis.
