Dolphin Boy

April 29, 2010

Last year, Same Difference featured the story of Lucas Murray, 7, from Dorset, who was born blind but can now ‘see’ after being taught a technique known as ‘echo location’ by blind Californian Daniel Kish, founder of a charity called World Access For The Blind.

Today, the Daily Mail website carries the story of Jamie Aspland, 4, from Kent, Kish’s latest UK patient. The article describes Jamie as ‘dolphin boy’ because echo location is used as a language by dolphins.

Jamie’s story is a great example of DisAbility which may be particularly interesting and useful to readers in the UK who are interested in treatments for blindness.
