Chapter 3:Helen's desire to express herself grew, and so did the severity of her tantrums. It got to the point that she raged every day or several times throughout the day. Most of her family and friends felt that nothing could be done for her. Tuscumbia was so far away from any school for the blind and deaf, that most people in her world were not aware of any such resources. Kate (her mother) read about a blind and deaf student named Laura Bridgman, though, and that gave her some hope for Helen
Chapter 4:Anne Sullivan came to teach Helen on March 3, 1887. Right away, Sullivan began to teach Helen to fingerspell using the manual alphabet. Helen enjoyed it as a game, but that is all it was to her at first.Several weeks later, Helen became frustrated when Sullivan tried to teach her the difference between "mug" and "water." In a rage, Helen threw and broke a new doll. To cool Helen's temper, and perhaps to give herself a break, Sullivan took her pupil outdoors for a walk.
Chapter 5:The rest of the summer, Helen built her vocabulary. The more it grew, the more she felt like part of the world. Most of her lessons that summer came from the nature. She had a child's natural fascination with the miracles all around her - how the rain and sun help plants grow, how animals get food. Helen also learned to fear the power of nature. One day that summer, she was in a tree, waiting for her teacher to return with lunch, when a storm suddenly arose.


Chapter 1:Helen was only a baby when she lost her sight and hearing.  At the age of 19 months, she had barely learned to use language.I showed many signs of an eager, self-asserting disposition. Everything that I saw other people do I insisted upon imitating.  At six months I could pipe out "How d'ye," and one day I attracted every one's attention by saying "Tea, tea, tea" quite plainly. It is a difficult time to be thrust into a world of darkness.  Since she had no communication, it was difficult for her to experience the world.  She focused on the few words she knew, such as “wah-wah” for water.  Until Anne came to open up her lines of communication again when she was six years old, she was scared, confused, and lonely.Strong-willed even as an infant, Helen spent four long years in the dark and silence.  She had very little human interaction of the kind she had as a baby, because she could not experience the people around her in the same way anymore.  Anne Sullivan changed all of this, finally giving her words and making her human again.
