NAPLES, Fla. — A six-year-old girl from Naples and her family are in key largo this week for "dolphin therapy."

Libby whittle has epilepsy and is non-verbal.

Thanks to make-a-wish, she is getting five days of intensive therapy designed to improve her motor skills.

Libby loves swimming, dancing, and interacting with animals.

Her mom says it is great for her family to be able to enjoy time together and feel safe without worrying about Libby having a seizure.

She also says Libby has had a smile on her face the entire time she has been with the dolphins.
