Daniel Kish

Perceptual Navigation Specialist

Daniel Kish has been an innovator in neuroscience since he learned to walk. After losing both eyes to retinal cancer by the age of 13 months, he spontaneously began to echolocate by clicking his tongue on the roof of his mouth and listening to the echoes from the environment around him to navigate. Fast-forward several decades, past two master’s degrees and becoming the first blind person to achieve both national certifications in Orientation and Mobility, Kish has taught over 2,500 people around the world to ‘see’ with what he calls SonarVision. Through World Access For The Blind | Visioneers.org, Kish and his team have also been vanguards in neuroscience validation and journal publication of their work in partnership with universities and colleges in the US, the UK, Canada, and Germany. Their “FlashSonar” methodology has been activating the visual cortex around the world, training brains to rewire to see with sound.
