IAM Aphasia Programs, June 2016

IAM International Aphasia Movement
Co-Founded by Harvey N. Alter and Michael A. Young, Esq. 2001

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

All of our programs are free of charge. Everyone is welcome!
