Under the guidance of coaches, dolphins living in the National Aquarium of Cuba in Havana help improve the quality of life of children with special needs. Boys and girls with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and autism interact with cetaceans as part of a treatment that has earned the nickname 'Dolphin Therapy'.

Children touch, hug, feed and throw balls to the aquatic mammals, which respond by moving their noses and fins or pirouetting. These psychomotor exercises have achieved amazing results. Started in 1997, the treatment stimulates motor skills, learning, language, and human relations.
