Beijing: A new Dolphin-assisted therapy that helps treat children with mental disabilities is gaining popularity in China, according to a media report.The technique for children with mental disabilities has already made a splash in the West, and China is now riding the experimental tide.Fifteen sessions with a pair of bottle-nosed dolphins at Hangzhou Polar Ocean Park have helped a five-year-old autistic kid become "aware" and "alert”.Zheng Jun, father of the boy, believes the dolphin-assisted therapy has been more effective than any other treatment."Now, you can`t tell he`s different from his classmates," Zheng said.Zheng became a believer of the technique after he visited an Australian dolphin-swim programme few years ago. He says his son is elated when he splashes with the creatures in the park in Jiangsu, capital of east China`s Zhejiang province.
