Daniel Kish Visit to Auckland

Grafton

Tuesday, 5 April 2016, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Come along and join us for a free inspirational talk by American echolocation expert Daniel Kish aka Batman.

Completely blind since childhood, Daniel developed a sonar technique which allowed him to navigate using echoes from repeated tongue-clicks.

The skill has led to him being dubbed a real-life Batman.

Echolocation has allowed Daniel to pursue outdoor hobbies such as hiking and even bike riding.

Daniel and his organisation have taught echolocation to at least 500 blind children around the world.

He is totally blind, a legally Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist (COMS) and holds a National Blindness Professional Certification (NOMC). He also holds masters degrees in developmental psychology and special education.
