I have a 3yr old daughter and I'm struggling to explain my condition. I'm finding that I just brush over the fact that I'm clumsy or dribbling and make light of it.
My dad and brother both have ataxia and are suffering at different degres. My brother walks with a stick and my dad is currently in hospital.
She a very bright girl who loves books and I thought probably putting it in a story where she could identify certain symptoms with the characters might make it easier for her to understand.
I already have me, dad and my brothers characters but I was wondering if there was something other people would like to expain to a younger person about a symptom or progression. Any sugession would be appreciated.
Idealy I would like to self publish and use it as a fund raising tool for research.
