“ALYN is one of the world’s leading specialists in pediatric rehabilitation and is the only facility of its kind in Israel. ALYN specializes in diagnosis and the rehabilitation of infants, children and adolescents who are suffering from physical disabilities, both congenital and acquired.”
The three interns had a very unique experience at this special institution. The main job of all three interns was to work as an aide in one of the outpatient care centers. They worked with small children — both Jews and Arabs — who have severe physical difficulties. The interns also all participated in some of the many therapies with the children, including music, physical, and hydrotherapy. Additionally, they had direct access to the staff psychologist to review case histories.
