Aleh Foundation helps provide accessibility for safety and independence and helps transform the home of children and adults like AYALA to be accessible to the disabled and physically challenged. Ayala a beautiful, bright five-year-old was born with spinal bifida and is paralyzed from the waist down. To give her the best care, her family made the difficult move from Israel to the U.S. Aleh Foundation is here to help her family adapt their home to become disabled-accessible, and to ease their staggering financial burdens. These modifications allow Ayala to live with dignity and to stay in her own home as she ages. Accessible Bathrooms prevents a disabled child from a fall, which can have devastating effect. The danger of slipping on a wet bathroom floor or when stepping into or out of the bathtub is a major reason the bathroom is the most hazardous room in the house. Solutions for the bathroom include specially designed showers that are easier to use and grab. You can help this delightful little girl- and her loving family - to thrive, despite the painful challenges they face. Ayala needs special equipment and therapies.
Tactile sensory stimulation involves the sensation of touch and texture. Autistic children with tactile sensory issues may have difficulty tolerating the sensations generated as they dress or groom themselves, or even as they chew food.
Therapists work with tactile-sensitive individuals to desensitize them to unavoidable textures and touch sensations. This is accomplished gradually over time using specialized therapy brushes, sand and water activity tables, therapy balls and rolls, and blankets which provide propioceptive feedback, gross motor control, and muscle movements
