Helen Keller lost her sight and hearing as the result of an illness during her infancy. For more than five years, she lived in a world of darkness and silence. Imagine yourself in such a situation. If possible, use a blindfold and earphones for a brief time to simulate Helen's world, and consider how Helen must have felt. What possibilities were open to her for communication? Explain how Helen must have felt and the difficulties of her situation. Then explain why she acted as she did and whether her actions and behavior are understandable.
