Mother of disabled boy chosen to speak in front of Duchess
THE mother of a disabled boy from Henley gave a speech in front of the Duchess of Cornwall.
Reama Shearman, of Milton Close, spoke at an event at St James’s Palace to mark the 125th anniversary of the charity I CAN, which runs a specialist speech and language primary school in Surrey that her nine-year-old son Tait attends.
Mrs Shearman, 39, who is a parent-governor of the Meath School, was accompanied by her husband Richard, a graphic artist, son Teal, 15, a pupil at Gillotts School, and daughter Ella, a student at The Henley College, who was celebrating her 17th birthday.
She talked about speech, language and communication needs and said it was a “privilege” to be there.
“It was in such impressive surroundings at the palace and it was pretty special because my children were able to be there,” said Mrs Shearman.
