Stories of Success and Support from the ALYN Hospital Community
AFAH SCHOOL-BASED STEM PROGRAM
The partnership with ALYN’s Innovation Space gives the students in the program real-world experience. Students design and create prototypes to help solve the actual challenges faced by patients at ALYN Hospital, which when implemented, helps them be more independent with normal daily activities.
The students receive feedback from PELE (Hebrew for wonder,) the track within the Innovation Space that creates personal solutions for children undergoing rehabilitation not only at ALYN Hospital but also at other hospitals in Israel and around the world.
PARENT SPOTLIGHT: Gina Shaffer
"I can't say enough about how grateful we are for what ALYN did for our son, after his brain surgery to remove a malignant brain tumor and the subsequent onset of Posterior Fossa Syndrome, a condition that often sets in after surgery of the cerebellum. He had less functioning than a baby, including loss of speech, inability to swallow, and complete loss of movement."
