After our stay in Antalya in May 2015 Jakub has changed a lot. He is more interested, learning and exploring new things. Definitely, he is more happy.
Thank you so much for having welcomed us during our stay in Antalya! It was a great, great honor to meet us and it´s an unbelievable pleasure to swim together with Flip. Sibel and me think every day about these exceptional moments. The people make there a great and an important job. When we will have a flat in Antalya, we’ll come next year again, in order to meet the team and flip.
Your beautiful smiles are in our hearts and souls. Read the rest of this entry
The service around the subject of dolphin therapy was absolutely superb. Svetlana, Julia and also Silvio are not just competent and eager to help, but are also wonderfully likeable and dear people. And also Svetlana’s husband, Igor, whom we got to know along the way, is a very likeable and pleasant person. The interns Kim and Miriam were also very eager to help and we were totally satisfied.
We felt very well taken care of in the Dolphin Therapy Center in Antalya, and the professionalism was obvious and came with all the necessary sensitivity. Also organizationally we could find no fault. Absolutely super, and we can only express a huge Thank You and fully deserved praise.
We really miss the lovely time we had in Antalya and hope that we can come again in the coming years.
At the weekend we met fanilies who also had children with Emanuel syndrome, like my son Leon. That was very interesting and a large number of these families had also decided to give this therapy a try. Everyone was impressed with Leon’s development and the great therapies with you played a big part in that.
Apart from that, Leon is doing very well in school. He did find it difficult at first but now he’s really getting on well with it. He is communicating more and using a mixture of gestures and speech. We are constantly amazed at how much he can really understand and achieve.
We wish you every success for the season and all the very best for the future. Best wishes to all!

The Dolphin Therapy for Sophie the end of September/beginning of October 2014 was very enjoyable for all of us. The therapy was successful. Sophie’s body is no longer quite so tense. Her gait pattern is improved, she is able to concentrate better, and also her fine motor skills, for instance when coloring, are vastly improved.
Olivia had dolphin therapy in September 2014. Our expectations were not high, I just hoped, that even if I do not see changes in her behavior, maybe something changes inside her. It was not important to me to see a miracle, more important was, that she could understand and feel the world better after therapy. One was sure – she will love those 2 weeks with dolphins
Before going to Antalya we got many help from Elena by e-mail, our questions were answered even before asking them. Our little special needs were answered with good nature. Read the rest of this entry
I have off and dad too, Leni and Hanni have to go to school. At home we get everything ready for Turkey. As promised, Hanni may cut dad’s hair. She opts for a short hairstyle with BD logo for Big Daddy at the back. In the evening there is a school concert of Hanni and Leni in the City Theatre. Hanni plays horn and Leni plays tuba.

Jillian is a girl suffering from a genetic error on the 23rd chromosome. She is not able to talk (she can only make phonetic sounds) and has strong muscle hypotonia as well as a mental disability. She did her second dolphin therapy in summer 2012 – after we already made a really positive experience in 2009 we did not go into the second therapy with all too great expectations.

A very special workshop: Holistic treatment of children, insights into dolphin therapy
I am back from a magical trip: a workshop in the Turkish Aegean.
The focus of this workshop was holistic treatment of children with various physical and mental difficulties and illnesses. We treated and supported them alongside a group of wonderful therapists and coaches.
This was the first stay with the dolphins that Melanie herself wanted. Over a year ago she wrote: “I would like to go see the dolphins once again”. When asked why, she says, “Because they are the only ones who can look in my soul”.
Our daughter would like to thank all those who have contributed with large and small donations and with loving assistance to the success. Read the rest of this entry
