hi everyone,

my son has cp and is a quadriplegic , he loves being in water and when we go to florida later in the year we was thinking of taking him to swim with the dolphins.

i was just wondering if anyone else had done this and did your child enjoy it?

Hi we took our daughter Dallas to discovery cove and it was amazing.
Dallas has Aicardi syndrome ie cannot walk/talk etc.It was the best experience ever .

She enjoyed the whole day especially the man made beach as the water is very warm.

Im sure your child will love the experience.
