The program is written from Helen’s mind eye. The story is told on a taped voice over as Helen reenacts her full life from her childhood through her discovery of language when she was seven years old to the writing of her twelve books. She will show the children how she speaks and reads in Braille, and her story continues through her graduation from college. This is one of our most unique, very special programs which helps children understand and accept the different ways people do the same things and inspires them to be the best they can be with the talents they possess.
