Elrika Hoffman: Owner and Speech- Language- Hearing Therapist at Elrika Hofffman Speech Therapy Private Practice.
I started my journey in the independent private sector in 2013. I received a Bachelor's degree at the University of Stellenbosch in 2009 and completed my community service year in Witbank, Mpumalanga where I gained valuable experience at Witbank community hospital and several outreach clinics.
I am very grateful and privileged to have a very loyal, dedicated, creative and hard working Speech Therapist as employee and colleague. We are currently delivering services primarily at selected schools in the Northern- and Southern Suburbs of Cape Town.
Services are available in English and Afrikaans. Please refer to the rest of the website to find out more about what Speech Therapy is about, our consultation hours, as well as areas of interest.
Please contact us should you require more information, would like to make an appointment or speak to one of our Speech Therapists.
