IAM assists people with speech and learning problems due to the disability of aphasia caused by a stroke or other brain injury. Groups are held in several locations. Our sessions at Mount Sinai Downtown and The Church of St. Luke in the Fields are conducted by licensed Speech-Language Pathologists. Groups at Hunter College, Teachers College/Columbia University, and Brooklyn College are conducted by Graduate Student Clinicians under the supervision of Senior Supervisors.
