We are NOT taking her to an asylum!!!
This is before Annie came to the Keller's homestead. The Keller's had a new baby and Helen didn't like that so much, she pushed her new little sister's crate over to put her own doll in there. This shows that Helen cares more about her doll instead of her own sister. Her family members were scared and afraid of what Helen had done.
Captain Keller and James are arguing over taking Helen to an asylum. James offers to take Helen to an asylum but Captain Keller refuses and decided to just get a teacher for Helen to teach her to read, write, and spell. They found someone named Annie and she came the next week to help Helen.
Annie arrives at the homestead and goes straight to work with Helen. Helen doesn't really understand what Annie is trying to teach her but really Annie is just teaching her sign language. Then, Annie will not give Helen her new doll that she got unless she spelled doll back to her like D-O-L-L in sign language.
At the dinner table, Helen starts a tantrum by putting her hands in people's food, and yelling as loud as she possibly could. After this they all decided for Helen and Annie to go in their greenhouse for two weeks and if she didn't teach Helen then, she would have to leave. Annie finishes the two weeks
Helen drops her key in the well/pump. The key is the key to Annie's room. Helen locked Annie in the room and took the key and dropped it in the well/pump. This shows that Helen doesn't want to do what Annie is teaching her and that she wants to do whatever she wants.
Annie comes outside to the pump with Helen and shows her what water is. Annie makes Helen feel the water and spells in constantly into her hand. Helen starts to try and talk and Annie smiles. Helen says "Wah, wah" out of nowhere. This to her means water. She understands words now and that was her goal.
