The birth of dolphin baby Eva in May 2018 was a great delight to us. It is hardly possible to put into words how happy we are. We are glad to share the most beautiful pictures and backgrounds here on our blog for our readers. We hope that these pictures will put a smile on your face as well.
Karin Schöttner can barely describe what she was allowed to experience with her daughter Elena. “Elli”, what she is called by her family members, is heavily disabled since birth. The 13 year old can’t eat, talk or walk. According to Karin Schöttner, the dolphin therapy from two years ago was a huge success. Now, thanks to the help of her big sister and many donors, the dream of a second dolphin therapy came true.
Now that we are back home for almost one week, we feel like packing our bags and coming back again. We felt so comfortable and Emily has progressed amazingly. Our physiotherapist here at home is totally in awe! Emily is much more relaxed through her legs, and her head control has also improved significantly. We are trying to apply the tips from Daniil and Yagmur here at home.
Our Colin is 12 years old, autistic, suffering from Asperger’s Syndrome and became epileptic after emergency surgery following a severe accident in March 2014. Prescription drugs have not been able to reasonably control his epilepsy.
Against all expectations of his doctors here in Germany, Colin has well tolerated all therapies. His last epileptic attack occurred 10 days prior to our flight to Turkey and – knock on wood – it’s almost like a miracle, he has not had another attack since then !! Read the rest of this entry

We really miss the lovely time we had in Marmaris and hope that we can come again in the coming years.
At the weekend we met fanilies who also had children with Emanuel syndrome, like my son Leon. That was very interesting and a large number of these families had also decided to give this therapy a try. Everyone was impressed with Leon’s development and the great therapies with you played a big part in that.
Apart from that, Leon is doing very well in school. He did find it difficult at first but now he’s really getting on well with it. He is communicating more and using a mixture of gestures and speech. We are constantly amazed at how much he can really understand and achieve.
We wish you every success for the season and all the very best for the future. Best wishes to all!

The Dolphin Therapy for Sophie the end of September/beginning of October 2014 was very enjoyable for all of us. The therapy was successful. Sophie’s body is no longer quite so tense. Her gait pattern is improved, she is able to concentrate better, and also her fine motor skills, for instance when coloring, are vastly improved.
Olivia had dolphin therapy in September 2014. Our expectations were not high, I just hoped, that even if I do not see changes in her behavior, maybe something changes inside her. It was not important to me to see a miracle, more important was, that she could understand and feel the world better after therapy. One was sure – she will love those 2 weeks with dolphins
Before going to Marmaris we got many help from Elena by e-mail, our questions were answered even before asking them. Our little special needs were answered with good nature. Read the rest of this entry
