Dolphin Therapy Sponsorship
Children with Special Needs Swim with Dolphins in Florida
Water Planet’s Dolphin Therapy Programs cater to children with developmental delays, emotional and mental challenges, sensory integration issues, fine and gross motor skills issues or simply with social adaptation difficulties.
Please read on to learn how you can become a sponsor and make a difference in the life of children with disabilities.
Since they are considered as “alternative” interventions, our programs are not covered by insurance and a large number of families simply cannot afford them. We have been doing our best to make our programs affordable to more families by moving some of the proceeds of our recreational dolphin tours and of our Internship Program to partially finance the participation of more families in need of financial assistance. However, WE NEED YOUR HELP to allow more children with disabilities to take advantage of this wonderful experience. Please read some of the TESTIMONIES of parents, who have participated in our dolphin therapy programs to understand how life-changing our programs have been for most of these children and their families.
We find that our Harmony and Serenity programs can help a wide variety of children who were diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, most spectra of autism, manic depression, Rett Syndrome, Turrets Syndrome, ADHD, Down, hyperactivity, PTSD, etc.
We can also help children with more general mental and emotional disorders or difficulties in social adaptation and even children with terminal illnesses like cystic fibrosis, cancer, leukemia, etc.
