Estats Units, 2014

Beatriz de Diego-Lázaro is pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Speech and Hearing Science in the College of Health Solutions at Arizona State University. Her doctoral co-advisors are Dr. Pittman and Dr. Restrepo. Beatriz completed a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Therapy at the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain. She completed her Master’s degree in Early Intervention in Deaf Education at Fontbonne University in St. Louis, Missouri. She has been working as a speech and language pathologist with children with hearing loss and their families for eight years. As a doctoral student, her research has focused on identifying factors that predict and facilitate language development in bilingual children with hearing loss. She has also developed a tele-intervention program to provide speech and language services to children with hearing loss in rural Nicaragua who are identified with hearing loss late in life (after three years of age). Her dissertation focuses on the mechanisms that underlie word learning in bilingual children with hearing loss, particularly, the influence of vocabulary size and inhibitory control. Beatriz hopes that her dissertation will provide evidence for developing early and tailored interventions aimed to reduce the language and academic gap between children with hearing loss and their hearing peers.
