Jacqui de Beer

Jacqui studied at the University of Pretoria and graduated as a speech – language therapist and audiologist in 2004. In 2005 she completed a year of community service in Potchefstroom, and in 2006 she moved to London, where she worked for the National Health Service for 7 years. During this time, she worked with a diverse background of patients and therapists, and her passion for early communication intervention came to the fore. She returned to South Africa in 2013, and opened her private practice in Pretoria East. 

Jacqui’s therapy objective is to help children to reach their communication potential by delivering therapy in a child-centred and fun way. She shares her skills with parents and teachers to empower them to continue to facilitate the child’s progress at home and at school. As a mother of three, she understands how busy life can be – and helps parents to incorporate therapy goals into every day routines.

“Work hard, dream big, never give up.”

We were referred to Jacqui by my son’s creche teacher since she was seeing another little boy there at the time who had a similar personality to that of my son’s. Jacqui’s patient, caring approach created an environment where he could focus on improving his vocabulary and pronunciation in a fun and engaging way. She provided practical exercises for us to do at home which guided my husband and I to create consistent opportunities to develop his speech and confidence.

When she was satisfied with his progress and confident that we had the tools to assist him further she advised that speech therapy was no longer required and instead suggested occupational therapy to promote his school readiness. Unnecessary therapy is, I believe, something every parent fears. Jacqui clearly has great respect for both her profession and clients, and we are grateful for the positive influence she has had on our son.

I took my bubbly headstrong 3-year-old girl for a speech and language evaluation to Jacqui and had no expectations of how it would go. My daughter surprisingly loved every second of the evaluation, which was done in an age appropriate informal, playful yet structured way. It was never threatening and only hopeful to me as parent. My daughter was seen at her school and she absolutely enjoyed her individual sessions each week. Jacqui really brought out the best in her!

You have no idea the huge impact you have had on P's life and education. Before we met you, we were anxious and agitated about his future, now he just cannot stop expressing himself and learning new words. The ‘M’ family would like to thank you and your team for an amazing year and helping our son become more comfortable and happier with himself. We could not thank you enough and we love you.

I remember driving to Pretoria with my son once a week and how this was the highlight of his week! Jacqui de Beer became like family to us. She helped our kids excel in ways we never imagined. We have so much gratitude and will never be able to thank her enough. Jacqui, you are a rare gem and I know you will touch each and every person you continue to meet.

We would love to hear from you
