Annette Stock

About Us

Annette Stock is an innovative New Zealand trained Teacher and Speech Language Therapist who works alongside parents and teachers, with students who have difficulties in the area of speech, language and literacy development.

Annette was employed by the MOE before deciding to start up working privately, 16 years ago.

This enabled her to provide services across a wider range of the population. and enables her to offer services for those children who do not meet the MOE priority system or must wait for services, either privately or through schools.

Annette is endorsed with Speech Language Therapy (Canterbury University NZ) also holding qualifications in second language learning (CTEFLA), speech and drama (ATCL) and sociology (Certificate in Interpersonal Skills-Waikato University NZ).

She is a fully registered member of the NZSTA (New Zealand Speech Language Therapy Association), NZRA (New Zealand Reading Association) and Chamber of Commerce (Rotorua) Women in Business (Rotorua)

Annette regularly presents at national and international conferences on topics related to work in language and literacy. e.g. Speech Language Therapy Conferences (NZ and Australia) NZRA Conference, Intercountry Adoption, Global Learn Day.

How you help children

At any point, from the young baby to the oldest adult, difficulties can arise which involve Annette’s services to assess the problem and provide practical and functional assistance.
The core of her philosophy is centred around working with students and adults with speech and language difficulties – language/literacy, articulation, voice and fluency, working collaboratively with clients and weaving strategies into everyday life where possible.

Each client’s needs are met individually, working alongside of parents and schools, wrapping her services as best as she can around what is happening at home and at school, including preschool.

Annette contracts to educational facilities (Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary schools REAP) to develop training and programming for teachers and parents, primarily in the area of language and literacy.

Physical environment

Children work best in a familiar environment therefore Annette will come to you where possible or provide services through Skype.

Atmosphere

As a mother of 4 and a grandmother to 4, Annette is fully aware of the pressures on parents and schools. Therefore, Annette will set functionally achievable goals and practices for clients to best suit their needs. Having fun is a prime motivator and Annette’s work reflects this. Kids and adults alike!
