Boy “sees” with sound - level 1
This news is about a six-year old boy. He is blind. His parents want to help him. They go see a man.
The man teaches the boy to “see” with sound. First, you make a sound. This sound moves through the air. When the sound hits an object, it bounces back. The sound moves back to you. You hear this sound and understand it. The type of sound tells about the object.
The boy learns fast. He can “see” with sound. He can go to school without his parents. He can have a normal life.
Difficult words: blind (cannot see), object (thing), bounce (move quickly).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
