Improvement of Mental Age in Cerebral Palsy


On the same program was a child of 8 with cerebral palsy. Melissa was from my hometown of Winnebago, Illinois. She had been with the dolphins and Dr. Nathanson at Dolphin Research Center, in Florida. I arranged for her to be on the NBC "The Other Side" show11 that was filmed in Hawai'i. The parents told me the functional mental age level of their daughter had improved from 3.5 months to about 3.5 years after about a week around the dolphins.12

It is important to confirm such results with better studies and research. It appears dolphins can do remarkable things, and we would be wise to learn more.
