Echolocation and FlashSonar provides research, case examples, instructional approaches, and practice exercises that can lead to mastery of echolocation skills. This guidebook, written by Daniel Kish and Jo Hook, provides instructional strategies for teaching persons who are blind and visually impaired the use of echolocation as a method of gaining information about space and objects/environmental features in the world around them.

Although Echolocation and FlashSonar works well as an instructional manual for O & M specialists, it can also be used by adults who are blind and visually impaired and who are not working with rehabilitation professionals.

An extensive list of references and resources is provided for the reader.

Topics addressed in this guidebook include:

  • What is Echolocation?
  • How the Brain Develops and Operates
  • Optimizing Learning Conditions
  • How do I Teach FlashSonar to Myself and Others?
  • FlashSonar Exercises
  • The Importance of Echolocation and Future Research

Daniel Kish is widely regarded as one of the most experienced teachers of echolocation skills.

Note: FlashSonar skills should be used along with a human guide, dog guide, or cane.
