Gallaudet, friend of the deaf

Thomas Gallaudet was a young man of high ambitions but of weak health. After graduating from college he tried four professions but had to drop out of them. Then one day, while watching his younger brothers and sisters at play, he noticed a small girl looking on but taking no part. She was deaf. Thomas invented a game that helped her for the first time in her life to understand that things have names. From that day until the end of his life, Thomas Gallaudet devoted his energies to helping the deaf to cope and removing the barriers between the handicapped and the normal.
