Hi Kenneth, and welcome to Connect.
It’s difficult for the community to answer your important question about getting work with ataxia and brainstem lesions without know a bit more about you. Can you tell us a bit more about you and how you are doing?

For you, does the ataxia affect your coordination, walking, speech, fine motor skills, or …? May I also ask how old you are and what things you like to do most?
