Special Needs Program
Vallarta Adventures is proud to offer a personalized dolphin assisted therapy program to assist children with special needs by providing them with an alternative wellness option of swimming with dolphins.
Dolphin Assisted Therapy
Dolphin Assisted Therapy (DAT) programs are tailored to the individual needs of the participant with session goals set by the family and Vallarta Adventure staff at the beginning of the journey. The program consists of in-water interactions between the patient and the dolphin, assisted by our experienced Dolphin Therapy team.
Our Dolphin Assisted Therapy programs help participants learn to feel more positively about themselves in an environment that promotes fun, play and learning, providing them with the opportunity to bridge that experience back into their personal lives. The overall experience causes a relative improvement in the child's awareness, mental state and in the way they relate to the environment around them, which can be noticed session after session.
Fun filled experience
Entering into the dolphin's world provides a relaxing environment which helps participants to gain the most from the interactions and importantly provides children with a fun-filled time away from the stress of medical, physical, or emotional concerns.
