For me, the most surprising thing about this documentary was the fact, that people can use echolocation. When I saw how developed this ability was in Ben’s case I was shocked. I always thought that echolocation is for animals such as dolphins or bats. It’s amazing how humans can adjust to the new conditions.
Despite his blindness Ben Underwood was very independent child. I think that’s the key of his success. He never wanted to be seen as „disabled”. I think that it’s very important. In schools, blind children should be taught how to handle their life as independently as possible.
