At the age of the six, the half-wild, deaf and blind girl was take to see Dr. Alexander Graham Bell by her parents. From this visit, Helen met her teacher. Anne Mansfield Sullivan. She was so gifted that by the end of August, in six months, she knew 625 words, learned Braille and learned to write shortly afterward.
By the age of 10, Helen had mastered Braille as well as the manual alphabet and even learned to use the typewriter. By the time she was 16, Helen could speak well enough to go to preparatory school and to collage. In 1904, she graduated “cum laude” from Radcliffe Collage. The teacher stayed with her through those years, interpreting lectures and class discussion for her.
