Hello! My daughter has Down syndrome, and she just completed the ninth dolphin therapy course in Odesa. We came here the first time in 2010, and the result after every course was a significant improvement. After sessions with dolphins, my child became more attentive and calm. Emilia likes to communicate with dolphins very much, and they have developed a true friendship. I also would like to thank the therapists who worked with Emilia – the whole team of professionals who want to help every child. My deepest gratitude to your center!
During the first course of dolphin therapy, we performed an electroencephalogram before and after the course. And the result was significant. Today we finish the sixth course, it is 60 therapies and according to our doctor's statement we are 80% healthy. A few more courses and they give us a certificate stating that the child is completely healthy. We are very happy about this!
My name is Valentina Coroama. My child is Alex Tudor and he is 6 years old. We are from Romania. We heard about this Сenter from other parents, who came there. They were very-very excited about the results and we decided to try it. We had 8 sessions and from the 4-th with little effort my son entering in swimming with dolphins. I’m very pleased about it. I will recommend dolphin therapy and also, I planned to come back in April, when I expect to see revolution in his behavior. This time it’s just a beginning!
My name is Dan Ioana. I’m from Romania. My children’s names are Dan Casiana and Dan Chisar. I came there to have dolphin therapy, because my daughter has a delay in development. She is 2 years old. We don’t have special diagnosis. So, I want to help my little girl in a simple way, because dolphins are fun. And we have done 10 dolphin therapy sessions. I can say a big “WOW!”, because Casiana tried to talk something. She started to say some words, and I hope, many others will come! I definitely recommend dolphin therapy to all my friends and for all, who want to help their children in the beautiful way.
My name is Valentina Ceban, the child's name is Dan Valerian Ceban. We are from Moldova. We arrived to Odessa with paralytic Down syndrome. We did the course of dolphin therapy in May and we had 10 lessons. Now we have arrived for the second time, also for 10 sessions. After the first course of dolphin therapy, exactly after the 5th lesson, the child started walking about 2-3 steps and on the 8-9th day he was almost running! We come back home very grateful: child, mom and I, like a grandmother. After dolphin therapy, my grandson stopped biting, became calmer and more obedient. Now we listen to children's songs, draw and play with the ball. Dolphin therapy was opened for us only from the good side.
I am Larisa Lastovina. My son’s name is Timofei. We always knew about the existence of dolphin therapy, but when the child was diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorder and speech development delay, we decided to take a course with dolphins. Now, we have already had 15 sessions. And, already after the first 10 lessons, we saw improvements in the development of the child’s thoughts, vocabulary was significantly expanded, and communication skills were improved. We are thankful to the team of specialists and therapists who provide dolphin therapy, they are doing a great cause! Progress is already evident during the process of dolphin therapy sessions. After the 5th lesson, the child's condition returned to normal, and appetite even increased. I definitely recommend dolphin therapy. If there is such opportunity, you should obligatorily try it!
Bobrovsky Dmitriy We passed diagnosis in geneticists and they was diagnosed with syndrome Cornelia de Lange . Dolphintherapy is a part of our treatment. After 10 dolphintherapy sessions the child has emotional outburst, Milana can express her emotion. After the treatment we can’t stop her when she talk! Changes have occurred in communication; she’s start count. Milana loves her classes, therefore we see that our kid is opening up! This is a really big deal for us.
Hello! I am Elmira Veisova, the mother of Irina Medved. This year was the second time we took a dolphin therapy course at Nemo Dolphinarium Berdiansk. We liked it very much. Our child was very happy; she befriended dolphins, showed signs of improvement, and began pronouncing syllables more expressively. Her speech became clearer, and she began showing more interest, asking more questions and speaking in full sentences. She can retell a fairy herself. This year, she tried herself to swim in circles with dolphins under supervision of a trainer and, something we liked very much, showed more stamina and courage. She works well with arms and legs in water. We are very happy with Nemo Dolphinarium Berdiansk. Our huge thanks to trainers and dolphins with whom we worked! In 2018, we will definitely come back here again for another course! Respectfully, Elia and Irina Medved
Me, Vladislav Vitalievich Pilnitsky and my grandmother, Svetlana Pilnitskaya, would like to express our deep gratitude to dolphin therapy personnel, especially the instructors Yuri Mishkurov and Yevgeni and their assistant Alyona for warm hospitality and their ability to communicate with children. We have visited many rehabilitation centers for children, but no-one was able to establish contact with our child as quickly as they did here. Our child is overwhelmed with impressions, and we will definitely come back here again. We are also grateful to dolphins helping our children.
Leaving for home with the huge sense of gratitude. We, a Russian-speaking family from Germany, brought our autistic son here for dolphin therapy. After the first session, our boy (who cannot talk) was shouting Hurrah! for about two minutes. Today is our last session, and everything went down great. Our Misha was truly happy all this time. He is changing for the better right in front of our eyes. Our huge thanks to the instructors Zhenya and Yura for their professionalism and kindness, attentiveness and openness! We’d like thank the trainers Anya and Masha for their welcoming attitude! We also would like to thank the assistant Alyona for her tenderness, understanding and responsiveness! Our expectations have been greatly exceeded! We will definitely come back here again. We are going back home, but leaving here a small piece of our hearts.
Hello! We regularly take dolphin therapy courses, because we believe that this form of therapy produces good results not only for the psycho-emotional and speech development but also for development of movement ability. We have something to compare it with, as we took therapy courses in many countries and cities. The last two years we have been to the dolphinarium in Theodosia, and plan to come there again in 2018. On the positive side, I’d like to mention the excellent teamwork of the instructor, trainer and the main actors – dolphins. As a result, our child waited for every session, and each time, it was an adventure for him. The organization of therapy courses is very competent, and during a session, the child swims on dolphins a lot and listens to sonars. All that takes place in the atmosphere of love and kindness. 23 families came there on our recommendations in 2017, and every one of them were happy with the result and quality! Among the most impressive results are these: after a therapy course, two children from among those who came there with us began to walk unaided, and one child began to talk. Many children showed improvement in the quality of speech; they began pronouncing new sounds, syllables and words, and because they have the desire to talk, their vocabulary began to augment. Our huge thanks to the entire dolphinarium team, and a separate personal gratitude to our favorite instructor Marina! We will definitely come back here again! Respectfully, Kirill’s mother
Dear friends: A week spent with dolphins was incredibly interesting, effective and filled with fun! I’d like to mention the great job done by the entire personnel, who treated our child with utmost devotion. Everyone was very attentive, smiling and caring about my son as a close person. Everything is organized at the highest level! As a mother, I had nothing to worry about and nothing to keep an eye on! It’s worth a lot. They helped my son change clothes, were taking him to a therapy session, entertained and taught him… Despite the large number of visitors you receive, the locker room is clean, dry and has a pleasant smell! Thanks to dolphin therapy, my child has received a powerful emotional charge. Playing with dolphins stimulated development of his cognitive processes and psychomotor abilities. We are now ready for the upcoming academic year! Our huge thanks to the entire personnel, organizers of therapy sessions, and of course, our dolphin friends!
The Dushynov family
For seven years, our son Anton, diagnosed with cerebral palsy, has been taking regular dolphin therapy courses. The first courses were at Nemo Dolphinarium Donetsk, but today, it’s no longer possible because of war. Presently, we continue our dolphin therapy courses, with huge pleasure and desire, at Nemo Dolphinarium Berdiansk every summer. We have already taken quite a few courses, and we can tell with great confidence that every course brings positive results contributing to our son’s development dynamics: - in emotional sphere, we note that every dolphin therapy session excites a lot of positive emotions in our Antosha; - in behavioral sphere, he shows activity, i.e. big conscious desire for dolphin therapy sessions. After every course, our child becomes more purposeful and diligent, his interest in playing increases, his actions become more confident, he responds to a contact with the instructor and animals, and listens to communication with him. When stroking a dolphin, he tries to unbend an arm and open up fingers at the instructor’s command; - in communication sphere, his communication and speech skills continue to develop: he pronounces new sounds, his visual contact becomes steadier, and he shows desire for constant communication and attention. After every session, Antosha is visibly relaxed, which indicates the lowering of muscle tone and decreasing hyperkineses, and displays satisfaction with therapy sessions. All that bears well upon his mood, appetite and sleep. We are grateful to instructors and trainers of Nemo Dolphinarium Berdiansk for all their labors! Our thanks to Lidiya Rubtsova, the head of dolphin therapy section, and of course, to dolphins – our friends and helpers! We wish all of you strong health, and are eagerly waiting to see you again the next year! During the whole year, we often watch the photos and videos of our sessions and shows. We miss you very much, because we got used to your company over all these years. Thank you for being with us and for helping ill children!!!
