SULIT91119/2Section C[25 marks][Time suggested : 50 minutes]Questions 26 to 31 are based on the following passage1Due to a rare brain condition, Tait Sherman lived in a silent world, but afterfinally getting help from a specialist speech school – and a children’s classic – hewas able to tell his mum Reama exactly what he felt for her.2Tucking her son Tait into bed one night, for the very first time, his mumReama Sherman heard the words she had been longing for all her life. Her little 5seven-year-old boy gave her a big hug and whispered “I love you.” Most othermums would have heard those special words hundreds of times by the time theirchild had reached Tait’s age. But for Reama, it was a heart-melting moment asuntil then little Tait had lived in a silent world.3Tait, now 10, suffers from a rare brain abnormality, Bilateral Perisylvain 10Polymicrogyria, which affects the part of his brain concerned with language. Itmeans Tait knows what he wants to say but his mouth and lips can’t make thesounds. The condition is so rare that there isn’t even an association to helpsufferers and their families. For years Reama, 40, fought to get a diagnosis for herson and the professional help he so desperately needed. But when that help finally 15came, the results were astounding – Tait finally found his voice after seven years ofbeing unable to speak.4Reama says, “It was the most amazing moment. To not be able tocommunicate with someone that you love most in the world, and not be able to saythose words that connect you is just heartbreaking. We would always use sign 20language to say ‘I love you’ but one day when I was putting Tait to bed, he pulledme in to hug him and said the words ‘uv you’. It was a heart-stopping moment.”5But incredibly, what had helped him say these three words was reading thebestselling children’s book, Guess How Much I Love You?, in which a couple ofhares, a father and son, use larger and larger measures to quantify how much they 25love each other.“It has been a much-loved book of ours so I would always try tothink of a new measure of my love for Tait,” says Reama. “I would often includesomething that he had done that week such as ‘I love you a hundred lengths of theswimming pool.’ We always used to sign the words but this was the first time Taithad been able to say them himself.”30 2015 Hak Cipta Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri Perak[Lihat halaman sebelah]SULIT

SULIT101119/26It had been a long battle for Tait. At first he had seemed like any other babyand reached his developmental milestones like any other toddler – apart from hisspeech. He could barely say a few words and these could only be understood bypeople who knew him. It was when he was three that he was finally referred to theNHS speech and language service. However it took his parents Reama, a director at 35an educational think tank and husband Richard 48, a graphic designer, fromHenley-Upon-Thames, Oxon another 18 months to get him the help he needed.7Reama, who has two other teenage children, explains, “He was four and ahalf when we finally got a diagnosis. Before that they had diagnosed him as havingoral dyspraxia – a condition where the child has difficulty in making and 40coordinating the movements to produce clear speech. Then he had an MRI scanthat gave us the diagnosis of BPP. It was pretty gut-wrenching but it was reallygood to have a label for it. Having a diagnosis means that you can actually accessthe help you need.”8Although in a mainstream primary school with some access to speech and 45language specialists, none of the other children knew sign language. Tait was stillstruggling and it wasn’t until Reama came across the children’s communicationcharity I Can and their specialist language school in Meath 30 miles away inOttershaw, Surrey, that, after a legal battle with her local council, she finally gotthe support she and Tait needed.509Reama explains, “He was a frustrated, lonely little boy whose confidencehad been damaged by his previous experience at school. Tait is cognitively ageappropriate so putting him in a school where nobody had the same needs waswrong. After he got a place at Meath aged six, the improvements to his life wereimmediate. The Meath School staff gave him techniques to help him make sounds 55by moving his mouth and lips into certain shapes, and there are speech andlanguage therapists in every class. Pupils are put into class groups according tolanguage comprehension rather than year group enabling all pupils to access thecurriculum, and work is differentiated to gain the optimal learning from each pupil.Teachers use lots of visual support such as pictures, symbols, spellings and signs to 60make the words ‘live’ and last longer so that the children can retain them.”10Four years on, the difference is almost miraculous. Tait constructs longsentences, has conversations and can usually be understood when buyingsomething in a shop or when answering the phone. Reama says, “He started tomake progress straight away; there was a difference in him. He was able to belong 65somewhere; he was with other pupils who were like him, so they find a way toconnect that doesn’t always need words. Previously he was in a mainstream schoolwith a language unit and he felt isolated. The staffs weren’t trained well enough toreally understand his needs. It just was a horrendous time.” 2015 Hak Cipta Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri Perak[Lihat halaman sebelah]SULIT

SULIT11111119/2Just 18 months later, Tait finally said those three words that meant so much 70to him and his mum. Now three years after his mum first heard his voice, he canfinally make himself understood. “He can speak in sentences, some words aretricky to understand, but he can get by, people can understand him,” says Reama.“He will always struggle to be able to make words sound normal, but he is the mostdetermined child. The difference that I Can and Meath have made to our lives, I 75can’t even explain how amazing it has been. Hearing your child tell you they loveyou is priceless.”Adapted from ldn’t-talk-until540091526a)From paragraph 1, why did Tait Sherman live in a silent world? .
