As the first ever male Speech Pathologist here at Kids Chatter, we are very fortunate to have such an amazing therapist on our team who is incredibly passionate about what he does and has a wonderful ability to connect with children in his sessions.
Matthew has always wanted to work in a profession where he could work with and help people. Together with a big love for music, teaching as well as an interest in languages, speech pathology seemed like an obvious and complementary career to pursue. As well as working as a Speech Pathologist, Matthew also teaches piano to children in a private studio at Brookfield Music on weekends.
Matthew has had experience working with children in the Griffith Health Clinic on the Gold Coast as well as an Early Childhood Education Centre, plus he has taught music classes at a primary and high school prior to becoming a Speech Pathologist.
Matthew’s key areas of interest include working with voice, stuttering and speech sound development. Though ultimately, he really enjoys all aspects of speech pathology and loves to be able to have a small part in making a difference in a child’s life and their family.
What brought him to Kids Chatter?

Outside of his speech pathology and music careers, Matthew enjoys practising his music, singing in choirs, reading books and socialising with friends.
