A Day At Aleh
Shira and her friends participate in a group snack time program, with a communication therapist leading the children in alternative communication devices to express their choices. Today, Danny chooses applesauce and chocolate milk.
Shira's physical therapist helps her develop better muscle control and stamina. Shira relaxes in a calming, soundproof room full of lights, colors, aromas, vibrations and music.
The speech therapist joins the nutritionist to observe Shira’s improved ability to eat by herself and digest her food, and to plan the next steps in encouraging a higher level of independence.
Shira and her friends close their eyes for a well-deserved rest. Naama finishes her shift and Tali takes her place.
Shira and her friends enjoy a short outing to the nearby playground with a group of volunteers.
