It was also on the fourth season of Criminal Minds.
I was really interested in it and read about it a lot. I know a lot about deafness because of a profoundly deaf friend but I don't know much about blindness so it was interesting to learn about.

I saw a show on Discovery Health I think, about a teenage boy who could see very well (in his familiar surroundings) using only sound. He was blind but riding bikes, roller blading better than most average humans, and playing basketball in a street.


"'Colie, you should never be surprised when people treat you with respect. You should expect it.'
I shook my head. 'You don't know--' I began. But, as usual, she didn't let me finish.
'Yes,' she said simply, 'I do know. I've watched you, Colie. You walk around like a dog waiting to be kicked. And when someone does, you pout and cry like you didn't deserve it.'
'No one deserves to be kicked,' I said.
'I disagree,' she said flatly. 'You do if you don't think you're worth any better...'"

I saw this on BBC news the other day ... AMAZING!! Especially for a 7 year old blind since birth. I would understand it more it he lost sight or was older, but this is one seriously smart kid.

This is cool, but since when was echolocation a new thing?
