15-Year-Old Dyslexic Girl Helps Deaf and Blind Man
News on June 22, 2018
A man who is both deaf and blind was flying unaccompanied after visiting his sister. The Alaskan Air line flight attendants did not know how to communicate with him but knew that he could read sign language if he could feel the shapes.
A 15-year-old girl on the flight, Clara, had taught herself sign language because she is dyslexic and it was the easiest foreign language for her to learn. She spent the flight tending to the man’s needs and allowing him to feel each and every letter she signed in order to make sure they were communicating clearly.
