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 Dissemination and Implementation Specialist 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 papers published in a variety of peer-reviewed journals, to include
Behavior Analysis in Practice, Behavior and Social Issues, Perspectives on Behavior Science,
and Reading & Writing Quarterly.
