Maybe it was more effective in terms of being successful in producing a desired result. Thanks to echolocation Ben improved his mobility, became more independent, aware of his surroundings and didn’t have to use other tools a lot of the time. He really desired to be as similar to other kids as possible and to not use any visible tools like white canes or guide dogs.
I wouldn’t call echolocation a safer method, though. I think that all of these things (echolocation, guide dog, white cane) have advantages and disadvantages depending on the situation. Probably the safest option would be combining those methods (maybe not all of them at the same time, but at least two of them, like using echolocation and a white cane).
