The primary mission of the Delfinario is that of Dolphin Assisted
Therapy for children with Down Syndrome, Autism, Cerebral Palsy and
other ailments of the central nervous system. The child interacts
with the dolphin in the water assisted by a trained therapist. In
addition to the physical stimulation the child receives from the
dolphin, the dolphin's sonar produces ultrasonic frequencies which
stimulate the central nervous system and improve brain plasticity.
These therapy session are conducted for the 1st Group each day.
