Aquaventuras Park Vallarta Provides Dolphin Therapy for Kids with Disabilities

December 18, 2015

Ten minors with different types of disabilities began a dolphin therapy program, through the Program for Comprehensive Care of Disabled Persons System for Integral Family Development (DIF) of Puerto Vallarta.

The children were received at Aquaventuras Park facilities, a company with humanitarian gestures who expect to receive another group of ten children this week and at least two other groups in January.

The Dolphin Assisted Therapy (Terapia Asistida por Delfines - TAD) is a set of aquatic methods, physical and emotional rehabilitation, where the dolphin play a key role in the process.

A program of meetings with various activities to help stimulate dolphin areas such as attention, sensory perception, motor skills, language, and various cognitive abilities takes place.

The ultrasonic waves emitted by the dolphin activate neurons and facilitate the stimulation of both brain hemispheres. They also stimulate other components of the body such as cells and hormones, achieving external and internal changes.

Dolphin assisted therapy is a form of purely functional therapy, which is not intended to prevent or cure diseases, but only rehabilitate and/or encourage people with disorders of the central nervous system or mental disorders.

It is aimed at children with special needs, autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, attention deficit disorder, language disorders, learning disorders, anxiety disorders, mood disorder, among others.

Above all, it contributes to improving the quality of life of children and their families, to optimize the results of the regular therapies and create links and deep emotional impact.
