Meet Shontaye

Shontaye Glover, M.S., CCC-SLP

Hey! I'm Shontaye

6 years ago I realized there was a gap between what we the experts know and what parents know.  A post on my social media page about the benefits of play uncovered that many parents and caregivers didn't realize how they could hep enhance and develop their children's language skills.  From that post was birthed the "Having Our Say Blog." I set myself on a mission to close that gap one post at a time.  Since that time Having Our Say has grown to be much more, but never forgetting my commitment to educating families.  

In addition to providing intensive and effective intervention, I am also extremely passionate and intentional about using books and materials that are inclusive and represent every child.  I am dedicated to presenting children with images and stories that are as diverse as the world in which we live.  Every child deserves to feel represented and seen.  This commitment to increasing diversity in children's literature has now led to the completion of my first literary work- Liam’s First Cut. For more information about the book please visit


Learning should be fun and play is a child's work! I am passionate about developing strong foundations at an early age to help children develop lifelong skills. My clients always know that I care and have their best interest at heart. I strive to bring a nurturing and caring disposition to every child I encounter and I am grateful to every parent who entrusts their child to my care.


I am a proud alumnus of Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD and received my masters of science degree in communication disorders from William Paterson University in my home state of New Jersey. When I'm not working, I love being with my family, listening to music, writing, running, and relaxing on the beach.
