About Shari DeVeney

Dr. DeVeney is an assistant professor in the Special Education and Communication Disorders department at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Her undergraduate work was completed at the University of Nebraska Lincoln (UNL), Masters at Kansas State University, and doctorate at UNL – all in speech-language pathology. Prior to graduating with her doctorate in 2012, she spent 10 years as a practicing clinician, working mainly in early childhood and K-12 educational settings in Nebraska, Kansas, and Texas. Her research focus revolves around young children at risk for communication delays, including toddlers slow to begin speaking (late talkers). In 2016, she was honored to serve as the president of the Nebraska Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSLHA).

The broad focus of my research program involves the development and advancement of appropriate assessment and intervention for young children whose communication delays are likely to persist and/or worsen without early childhood intervention. Early delays in speech and/or language development may have long-standing negative effects on later communication and pre-literacy development. My secondary areas of research interest includes the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) for communication sciences and disorders.
