Mutual Support and Education
for Persons with Gerstmann Syndrome

Gerstmann Syndrome Support Network is a National Non-profit Network which was founded in September 1997. The Network offers mutual support and education for persons with Gerstmann Syndrome, which causes an inability to do math, express thoughts in writing, distinguish between right and left, and distinguish one's own finger from another's.

Gerstmann Syndrome Support Network provides the following services:

  • Education about the disorder to professionals
  • Pen-pal service to those with Gerstmann Syndrome
  • Advocacy service to those with Gerstmann Syndrome (on a limited basis)
  • Phone support for professionals and those with Gerstmann Syndrome
  • Information and referrals to other groups that might be of additional help
  • Bereavement and grief support for those with Gerstmann Syndrome only
Gerstmann Syndrome Support Network has a Board of Directors. The requirements for board membership are that you must have Gerstmann Syndrome and be willing to share your ideas through letters to program questioners. Contact the Network for more information.

Gerstmann Syndrome Support Network publishes a newsletter 4 times a year. Due to a limit of 30 copies, we ask recipients to share with others when finished.
