Inspiring story of the woman behind the centre for deaf-blind persons in the US
Ruth Silver from the US was only 16 years old when she learned that she was going blind. She, eventually, lost most of her hearing as well.
Some people faced with similar problems might have thought that their life was over.
But Ruth was a firm woman who founded the Center for Deaf-Blind Persons in the US, wrote an autobiography at the age of 81 years, taught students, gave lectures and lived her life to the fullest.
At the age of 86, Ruth died due to heart failure.
Since 1985, the Center for Deaf-Blind Persons has provided training on communication, computers and adaptive technology.
