Helen Keller and Dr. Alexander Graham Bell
By Erin Horner
  

1     Helen Keller's parents knew she needed help. Their daughter was trapped in a dark and silent world. How could they help their blind and deaf daughter? The Kellers took her to a special eye doctor. They were disappointed when the doctor said that he could not restore Helen's sight. The doctor did, however, think that Helen could be educated. The doctor suggested that the Kellers take Helen to meet with Dr. Alexander Graham Bell.
 
2     Dr. Bell was the famous inventor of the telephone, but he was much more than that! As a man fascinated with sound, Dr. Bell was interested in helping those who could not hear. He was an expert in the field. Six-year-old Helen and Dr. Bell became fast friends. At their first meeting, Helen climbed into the kind man's lap. He graciously allowed her to play with his pocket watch. Helen loved the vibrations it made. He also "listened" to Helen as she spoke to him using her signs. Dr. Bell believed that there was hope for Helen. He encouraged the Kellers to contact the director of the Perkins Institution. He thought that the director might be able to find a teacher for her. Captain Keller did just that. Soon, a teacher was found. Her name was Anne Sullivan. She helped Helen make miraculous strides.
