    Helen was very sick when she was 19 months old the doctor did not think she would make it but when she recovered she was left blind, deaf and dumb. They want to send her to a school for blind people but she is also deaf and dumb so she would have more trouble learning than the other kids. So they are thinking about taking Helen to a eye doctor in Maryland. The doctor could not do anything so he sent them to Washington DC to see doctor Bell. They got a teacher for Helen and she just arrived and is excited about working with Helen. The teacher was writing words on her hand and she understands them! She went to a doctor that taught Helen how to speak and she said "I am not dumb anymore".
