It is interesting that he was a coworker of the late prof. Reuven Feuerstein, who deceased a couple of weeks ago at the age of 93, on providing supportive actions for children that are in need of special education. I suggest you google both him and prof. Feuerstein (who was his brother in law) and learn a bit about the wonderful achievements in helping such kids. Feuerstein too received the Israel Science Prize for his achievements, but , with respect to our interests - he is not a "mayflower" Czernowitzer - "just" a plain Botoshaner "Regatler"... Amazingly, they too were capable of achievements... (Apropos Hardy's message of today)
(Need to admit that I know prof. Feuerstein, since he was the uncle of my brother in law).
Another interesting item about prof. Rand is that he is the father of the - now (khozer bitshuva) - orthodox-religious screen actor (also script-writer, composer, and singer) Shuli Rand, who achieved special acclaim in the movie "Ushpizin" (the welcome visitors to the succah).
