Introductory Therapy Session

Not sure if the Dolphin Assisted Therapy Program is the right fit? Sign up for a 1-day introductory session to get acquainted with our dolphin assisted therapy. This introductory session is available exclusively for people with special needs or psychological conditions.

Before the day of the session, we will have a brief intake to establish the approach.

  • Half hour training of daily living skills such as showering, changing, organizing
  • Session evaluation

During the evaluation, the person, parents or legal guardians will be informed about the session. How did it go? What conclusions can we draw? What are the possible benefits of a full program of dolphin assisted therapy at CDTC in the future?

Please contact us for availability!
