Two support group meetings for stroke and head injury survivors and their family members will be held during the summer at Fredonia's Henry C. Youngerman Center for Communication Disorders.

A typical group meeting includes activities to help stroke/head injury survivors use compensatory strategies to improve communication skills. Educational information will be distributed and participants will have an opportunity to socialize and share experiences. Light refreshments will be served.

Sessions will be held on Tuesday, June 18, and July 16, at 3 p.m., in Thompson Hall Room E148.

The Youngerman Center recognizes that there are individuals in the community whose insurance benefit for therapy has been exhausted but their hopes for improvement have not. Contact Julie Williams, coordinator, at 673-4618 for more information about attending the group.
