IAM Group Schedules

IAM is now on Zoom!

The group that formerly met at Mt. Sinai Union Square is now meeting on Zoom.
We meet on alternate Mondays (except for USA holidays)
5 pm to 6:45 pm

New York City time (Eastern Standard / Daylight Savings Time)

During this group, we meet for about an hour in smaller groups.
The small groups have a variety of topics:
Word Finding
Reading Basic
Reading Advanced

Co-survivor Group – New!

The co-survivor group meets on the same night as the aphasia group, but at 7:30 pm, not at 5 pm. The co-survivor group is led by Christine Beverin, CCC-SLP.

If you are joining us for the first time, let us know which small group you would like to start with. If you are not sure, we can help you decide.
You are welcome to change groups at any time.
