Jacqui de Beer & Associates
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 practice in Pretoria East.
Jacqui loves her work with children, and provides bespoke, specialist and expert support for families, nurseries and schools. She is passionate about helping children to reach their communication potential by delivering therapy in a child-centred and fun way. She shares her skills with parents and education staff to empower them to continue to facilitate the child’s progress.
Jacqui is a mother of three, so understands how busy life can be. She has a way with people, that helps them find their way with words.

Bronwyn qualified from the University of Pretoria in 2016, and completed her community service at Job Shimankana Tabane Hospital in Rustenburg, during 2017. She joined the practice in 2018 as a driven, results-oriented young therapist.
Bronwyn is skilled in working with children with a variety of communication difficulties. She offers support and guidance for children who find remembering and understanding what has been said a challenge. She assists those who are struggling to use correct sounds for consonants and vowels. She can also help those who are having difficulties with word-finding, using vocabulary and building sentences.
Bronwyn runs early language and literacy groups at schools in order to facilitate children’s communication development. While targeting emerging language, she also supports children’s early social communication skills and teaches them how to participate in a structured environment.
She loves experiencing the excitement that a child and their parent feels when they achieve a new skill. Her warm personality and playful approach makes her a favourite among the children.

Treatments and Diagnosis
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.
We would love to hear from you
