Note: There is one holiday this session: Memorial Day, Monday, May 31. Monday class rates will be prorated for an 8-week session.

What are Virtual Groups?
Virtual groups use technology (computer with camera and microphone, smartphone or tablet) and free software (Zoom) to deliver classes at a distance by linking survivors with clinicians for groups, education or individual consultation. This technology allows survivors face-to-face communication with others in the stroke and brain trauma community without leaving home. Research has proven that although different, it is an effective way to work on skills.
