Jean de Wet
Speech and Language Therapist

I am an experienced Speech and Language Therapist offering services to children in the Tauranga area. My practice, Words, is based in Omokoroa and Tauranga.

I qualified with a BSc Logopaedics from the University of Cape Town in 1990. Since then, I have helped hundreds of children develop and grow their communication and literacy skills. I have worked in a wide range of settings – first in South Africa, then the United Kingdom, and then with the New Zealand Ministry of Education for 18 years from 1997 to 2015.

I am Hanen-trained and certified to deliver It Takes Two to Talk, More Than Words and the Learning Language and Loving It and Teacher Talk programmes.

I am trained in the Lidcombe approach to help young children who stutter, and the Camperdown programme for adult and adolescent stutterers.


I can assess and help children with a range of difficulties affecting their communication skills:

Please contact me to discuss any concerns you may have about your child’s communication skills and literacy development, and how I can help.
