    She realized goals no similarly handicapped person had ever achieved.

    This text is from SUMMIT 2, PP. 32, Joan Saslow, Allen Ascher.
    It's an essay about Hellen Keller.

    She realized goals no similarly handicapped person had ever achieved - university study, success as a writer, worldwide recognition as a great humanitarian.

    Would you please tell me the meaning of the underlined part? Thanks,

    It means that Helen Keller achieved more than any other blind person.

    'She was successful in activities which no other deaf/blind person had ever done before.'
