Echolocation The Boys and Girls Who See With Sound Blind Children Who See with Sound and Have Fun Too
I read these stories about kids who are blind and watch these videos of how they navigate with sound waves and all I can say is Wow! They are stories that start like this, "Ever since he was born Lucas Murray has been unable to see. But thanks to a technique using a form of sonar the seven-year-old can now visualize his surroundings for the very first time. By clicking his tongue on the roof of his mouth the youngster can discover where and how big objects are by deciphering the echoes that bounce back".

These kids can't see but can run with ease,play,and even skateboard! These wonderful remarkable stories of little kids and teens who are blind who skateboard and do other athletic activities with aplomb.
Then there was Jennifer Tissot who took up skateboarding because she wanted to do something more challenging. Now look at the story of Ben Underwood, another blind teen in California with similar ability.It is hard to even imagine how he does it and yet this remarkable teen can skate, play video games and more. You can watch the video of Ben Underwood skating and playing games. He has apparently refined echolocation to an art form.
