Helen Keller School of Alabama

Alabama's most famous citizen, Helen Keller, overcame a dual challenge of deafness and blindness through the strength of her spirit and the skills of her devoted teacher, Anne Sullivan. At Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB), we have long recognized the very special requirements of children who are both deaf and blind or have other multiple disabilities.

The Helen Keller School (HKS) takes a holistic approach to working with children with special needs involving staff and parents in the design of an education plan that may include language, math, Braille, music, art and other academics, in addition to independent living skills and physical or recreational therapy.

“One cannot be content to creep if one has the ability to soar.” -Helen Keller
