do as I do

Our Approach

Let's Talk Let's Eat Speech Pathology (LTLE) is a small, dedicated team of speech pathologists passionate about helping children reach their potential. We are mums, dads, aunties, and cousins who work hard to support each LTLE family as our own.

Our Story

Founding speech pathologists, Renee and Caroline, and newcomer Dustin, first met whilst studying anatomy at the University of Queensland. More than 10 years later, after settling on opposite sides of Brisbane they decided to set up a practice together that would help children in Redlands and north Brisbane meet their communication and feeding potential.

This is us! We are fun, we are passionate, and we are serious about helping your child meet their communication, and feeding potential.
