The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration is the place to turn for accurate information, compassion and hope when lives are touched by frontotemporal degeneration. FTD, also called frontotemporal dementia or frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD), is a disease process that causes a group of brain disorders characterized by changes in behavior and personality, language and/or motor skills, and a deterioration in a person’s ability to function.
If you are new to AFTD, it is helpful to begin with the overview and pages for those facing a new diagnosis.
