Presented By: Megan S. Kirby, PhD, BCBA
Megan S. Kirby, PhD, BCBA (pronouns: she/her/hers) earned her doctorate in
Behavioral & Community Sciences at the University of South Florida and master’s in
special education from the University of Virginia. She is the Director of Dissemination
and Implementation Programs for Language Dynamics Group, where she helps close
the research-to-practice gap by supporting teachers, speech-language pathologists, and
caregivers in their implementation of oral language interventions. Dr. Kirby’s research
focuses on scaling effective oral language interventions using culturally responsive
practices to reduce educational disparities among marginalized and under resourced
communities (e.g., children displaced due to war, climate change, and/or experiencing
poverty). To do this, she values multiple interdisciplinary research-practice partnerships
and sustains meaningful relationships with researchers and professionals from other
disciplines. She has authored multiple textbook chapters on single-case experimental
designs and a variety of peer-reviewed articles in journals that include Behavior
Analysis in Practice, Behavior and Social Issues, Early Childhood Education Journal,
Reading & Writing Quarterly, and Perspectives on Behavior Science.
