As a former softball player myself, I found chapter 2 to be the most interesting because it talked about a sport that I held very near to my heart and one that I can relate to. I did not realize how uneducated I was about the daily life of blind people and how they are more than capable of performing tasks that a person with sight can, such as playing sports. Although beep baseball is a modified version of the game, it still allows the players the opportunity to do the same things as seeing players like fielding, batting, running, and overall being able to enjoy the sport as a whole. Knowing first hand how the game can be intense and fast paced, it was interesting to read about a modified version that still allowed the game to be just as intense and fast paced. I love that sports like baseball can be modified for those with visual impairments because I do not believe that a disability should limit what one can do. I believe it is best that all sports are modified for everyone with varying disabilities so they can have the same opportunities as those who do not have a disability.
The psychology of Perception involves the interaction of our senses and our conscious mind. Perception is involved in every aspect of our lives as we make decisions and judgments based on what we experience. If you study diligently you will leave this course with a broad understanding of sensation and perception. From this general understanding you will be able to further investigate areas of interest by means of literature review and research on specific topics.
