Transcript of Hellen Keller

Helen Keller


Interesting ‼
Helen Keller learned to read Braille in five different languages. Those being English, French, German, Greek and Latin. Also , countries have different versions of sign language based on differences in syntax, grammar, and concepts.

I think that,being deaf and blind does not prohibit a person from learning, it just hinders that process. Helen Keller was able to read by Braille and understand speech by touching peoples throats and mouths. In this way she would be able to learn just as a person with no disabilities would.
Helen Keller was one of the most articulate writers of the 20th Century.Helen wrote 12 books.Also, she traveled to over 39 countries with Anne to talk about her life and experiences.
Helen Keller was born in June 27 of 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama. Helen's father name was Arthur Keller. He was a captain in the Confederate army. Kate Adams Keller was Helen's mother.
Becoming deaf and blind
Helen Keller was born with the ability to see and hear. At 19 months old, she contracted an illness described by doctors at the time as "an acute congestion of the stomach and the brain fever", which might have been meningitis. The illness left her both deaf and blind.
Experts say they are not sure what kind of illness it was; it isn’t entirely known. However, it is thought that it might have been meningitis, which is a bacterial infection of the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. The most common symptom of meningitis is fever and severe and persistent headache.
The parents of Helen hired Anne Sullivan to educate her. Anne taught Helen the manual alphabet by pressing the handshapes into Helen's palm. Helen was soon able to read Braille and write with a special typewriter. Helen also eventually learned to speak by feeling Anne's throat as she spoke and imitating the vibrations.

Helen made history in 1904. She was the first deaf and blind person to graduate from college. She graduated from Radcliffe College with honors. Helen became an author, political, activist, and a lecturer.
why do I chose Helen keller ?
I chose Helen Keller because I found, interesting that someone who is blind and deaf could be able to communicate with another people.Also Helen inspired me because she never give up ,even in the hardest situations.
