Hello everybody, I want to write something about a very short therapy-2 sessions- we had last summer. My son Doga is 10 years old, autistic and hyperactive.
We had a very distressed time in the summer of 2005. My son was ever more unhappy and nervous. He was shouting and crying continuously. Nothing was making him happy. News about the benefits of dolphin therapy which I had read about in the Cumhuriyet newspaper encouraged me to try this therapy. We were just able to get a reservation for 29th October. The first two days the weather was OK but then the temperature of the seawater dropped and Doga did not want to enter the water, so we postponed the remaining therapy until this year. We have been waiting for the meeting this year with enthusiasm. The two sessions were very good for all the family. This winter passed much more peacefully. Doga’s crying is wholly finished. His perception developed very much.
It is possible to join the therapy with the whole family. It is wonderful to swim with the dolphin and it creates an effect like a dose of Prozac. We are all very happy. We fell in love with Mischa. I think not only handicapped children but all children should swim with dolphins because of its wonderful effect; in my opinion it is more successful than the best psychologist.
Regards and love
