From the BBC News...

"From Yevpatoriya in the Crimea, the BBC's Steven Rosenberg reports on an innovative treatment for deafness in children - one involving dolphins"

"Local scientists believe that ultrasonic waves in the dolphin's voices are making all of the difference, helping to stimulate nerve endings in the ear and inside the brain."

"When deaf children listen to dolphins, they hear a new sound, ultrasound, and as a result, the dolphins help deaf children with hearing," he explains."
