International Aphasia Movement Benefit

Please join us to support the International Aphasia Movement (IAM)

  Monday, November 4th

Mount Sinai Union Square
10 Union Square East
2nd Floor Auditorium

IAM provides free speech therapy to adults with all kinds of aphasia — difficulty speaking, reading, writing, listening, or understanding language due to stroke
or other brain injury.

Groups meet in several locations across NYC, and are conducted by 12 licensed speech-language pathologists and 10 graduate students who volunteer their services so that IAM programs are free for all participants.

At our event we will view a short talk by IAM founder Harvey Alter, meet some of IAM’s participants, and enjoy delicious refreshments. 

Suggested minimum donation for this event is $20. Donations can be made on our website (iamaphasia.org), through Venmo (@Carlota-Schoolman), or by check made payable to International Aphasia Movement, and mailed to International Aphasia Movement, 155 Wooster Street, Apt 6 E/F, NY, NY 10012.

Donations can also be made regularly and at no additional cost by shopping through smile.amazon.com and listing International Aphasia Movement as your charity.

We hope to see you at this special event, and encourage you to invite your friends.

PLEASE RSVP on Eventbrite, our Facebook Events, by email or phone.
