Shontaye Glover Jones MS, CCC-SLP
Hey, I'm Shontaye!
Years ago I realized there was a gap between what the experts know and what parents need to 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 help enhance their children's language development. "Having Our Say" was birthed from that post. I set myself on a mission to close that gap one blog post at a time. Since then, Having Our Say has evolved into 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. Every child deserves to feel represented and seen. My commitment to increasing diversity in children's literature led to my own picture books - Liam’s First Cut and The Season of Yes!.

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.
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 New Jersey. When I'm not working, I enjoy trying new foods, listening to music, and relaxing on the beach with my family.
