If you have a child who has a formal Speech and Language programme then you should have been sent a copy of this by the therapist. If you do not have this, then contact Mrs Ewart via email@example.com and she will be able to scan and send you a copy. If you are able to do this programme at least 3 times a week then this would be great.
