In brief: Symptomatic

Ataxia telangiectasia is a genetic condition with no cure.
As such, therapy is directed at treating consequences of this disease. For example, it is best to avoid excess radiation (excess x-rays, ct scans) be wary of any signs of infection (due to immune compromise) and be vigilant about signs of malignancy (weight loss, night sweats, etc.). Physical therapy is also recommended for ataxia.
