Just send her to an asylum
You little devil
After the doctor visited the Keller's because of Helen's illness he told Helen's mother Kate and Helen's father Cpt. Keller that there is nothing to worry about and that she only has acute congestion of the lungs and brain. But after the doctor had left, they have just found out that she cannot hear or see. Kate is devastated and Keller is shocked.(We visit Helen five years in the future.)
Helen the servants daughter Martha and her son Percy were playing in the yard until Helen stole Martha's scissors and pointed them at her. After Kate contained the situation by taking the scissors back. James (Helen's half brother) tells Kate to send her to an asylum, Kate was infuriated at this statement and told him not to complain about what he can see. Helen's aunt Ev says that they need to call the doctor in baltimore to help them with Helen. Cpt. Keller reluctantly obliges for Kate's sake.
Instead of having Dr. Howe come Annie Sullivan was the new doctor. She has an internal conflict with her little brother Jimmie who died in an asylum years before. He was the last person that Annie loved. It was a hard day for Annie she got locked in her room by Helen and she is being doubted by Cpt. Keller because of her young age and inexperience. The well scene where Helen drops the key in the well is important because it shows symbolism with Annie by showing that her feelings are locked up.
In an attempt to discipline Helen, Annie kicks the Keller's out of the dining room and tries to make her eat from her own plate. Helen smacks Annie so Annie smacks her right back, but do to her hard work Annie makes Helen fold her napkin, eat from her own plate, and she ate with a spoon. When she tells Kate of this she starts to cry tears of joy.
Annie asked Keller if she could take Helen away so she could teach her to communicate. He was seriously debating on wether or not to kick Annie out but he decided to give Annie the garden house. James got annoyed from this and saw that Annie got whatever she wanted and he couldn't get any respect from his father. Annie brought Helen to the Keller's garden house in hopes of disciplining her better. After the two weeks that Cpt. Keller gave her the Keller's are more than satisfied because Helen is now obedient but Annie wants to teach her to communicate but she cannot do that with only a couple hours left.
When Kate and Keller got Helen back Keller told Annie that her work wouldn't go to waste and brought her back to the house to eat dinner. Helen started acting rude at the dinner table now that she thought Annie was gone. Annie has now had it, she takes Helen by the arm and walks her out to the pump to refill the pitcher but while doing this Helen says "wah, wah" trying hard to say water. The miracle had happened Helen spoke.
