The School of Vocal Physiology and Mechanics of Speech



Back on October 1872, Alexander Bell opened his "School of Vocal Physiology and Mechanics of Speech" on 18 Beacon Street in Boston. The school attracted a
large amount of hearing impaired pupils and his first class was 30 students.
His most famous student was Helen Keller. As a child, she was unable to see, hear, or speak. Keller stated that Bell dedicated his life to the penetration of that "inhuman silence which separates and estranges." In 1893, Keller performed the sod-breaking ceremony for the construction of the new Bell's new Volta Bureau. The Volta Bureau was dedicated to "the increase and diffusion of knowledge relating to the deaf."

  1. Sounds like a script of a King Speech. All these problems of speech through the glasses of neuropsychology and psychoanalysis are very tricky. I would recommend https://www.thrivingwriter.com/proofreading-service as a source to help you operate with the existing data in case if you will choose it as a theme of your research. I wonder, how Alexander Bell helped Hellen Keller.
