About Having Our Say

Meet Shontaye

Having Our Say is a private practice providing assessments and intervention services for children.  I provide home-based services to families, which is convenient and allows children to practice skills and learn in their natural environment.  I cannot be everywhere so I wanted to also create a virtual space to empower parents and caregivers with tools to help their children. Working with children is my passion and making changes in their lives brings me joy! 

I am a proud alumnus of Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD

(Go Bears!) and received my Masters of Science degree in Communication Disorders from William Paterson University in my home state of New Jersey. 

My career as an SLP began in a hospital setting, where I worked with adults and children. Since that time, I have become a wife and mother to two beautiful daughters and transitioned into the public school and private practice settings. My experience includes assessment and treatment of children and adults with various diagnoses and disorders. I am ASHA-certified (since 2002) and licensed to practice in New Jersey and New York.

Over the years, I have treated wonderful adults, but my joy is working with children and their families. My practice was birthed from that passion. With this site I hope to extend my reach and provide tips to parents and caregivers to help their children’s language skills develop, grow, and thrive! My hope is that Having Our Say becomes a place where parents can come to gain information as well as a place to ask questions and have their say too.​
