Echolocation and FlashSonar

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 who are working independently.

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

Note: A braille edition is available as a free download:

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