Helen was deaf and blind but she touched the hearts of many.
Helen Keller was born deaf and blind. Her strange condition made it difficult for her to communicate which cause extreme frustration in her younger years. When Helen was misunderstood she would become frustrated and often threw tantrums. Three months before Helen turned seven she met Anne Sullivan. In around six months Anne was teaching Helen vocabulary words, how to use the manual alphabet, multiplication, and braille. After Helen learned about a girl with a similar condition she was determined to learn how to speak. Using special techniques involving her other senses, like touch, Helen was on her way to learn how to speak.
