Though it might not fit with New Age dolphin lore, the reality is that dolphins, even those born in captivity, are wild. There’s absolutely no evidence to support the burgeoning practice of dolphin-assisted therapy. Here’s why dolphins are not healers - and why this practice needs to stop.
the animal cruelty aspect of this is ridiculous, and i also hate when people try to lure desperate parents to bring their children somewhere with anecdotal evidence that it’ll cure them of their disabilities. ive had people tell me that stupid anecdote about the kid who went to disney land and was suddenly “cured” of autism so many times.
yeah autistic children just need to go to disney land or interact with dubously mysticized animals and then everything will be perfect. you figured it out why didnt all the neurologists of the world think of that
