Doctoral Student - Cohort 2
University of Colorado, Denver
Renae Allemann (soon to be Cuevas Dias) is pursuing a doctorate in Child, Youth & Family studies with a concentration in Inclusive ECE at University of Colorado, Denver. She previously received a Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology with a certificate for “Preparing Speech-Language Pathologists to Foster Spoken Language, Learning, and Literacy in Children Who Use Cochlear Implants.” Since graduating with her Masters, she moved to Colorado to work with children with hearing differences. For the last 4 years, she has been working in her local Community Center Board providing Early Intervention services primarily to children with hearing differences and vision impairment who utilize Assistive Technology. Aside from that she enjoys working out, hiking, and reading when she has spare time. She is excited to start the Ph.D. program so that she can go on to do more research and teach others how to support the lower incident populations of children that she tends to work with.
