Instructor: Meagan Gregory
Meagan Gregory earned her Ph.D in Behavior Analysis from the University of Florida in 2010 and has been a BCBA since 2004. Her current (2015) positions at Florida Tech are assistant professor in the School of Psychology and faculty supervisor at the Scott Center for Autism Treatment. Dr. Gregory possesses a great deal of research, clinical and teaching experience. After earning her bachelor's degree, she worked for the Kennedy Krieger Institute (KKI), which serves children and adolescents with developmental disabilities, on the neurobehavioral unit. While at KKI, she earned her master's in human services psychology with an emphasis in applied behavior analysis.
Dr. Gregory then moved to the University of Florida to pursue her Ph.D. under the advisement of Dr. Brian Iwata while working as a behavior analyst for a residential program for adolescents and adults with Prader-Willi syndrome. During this time, she also taught classes in ABA at the University of Florida. As the majority of her clinical and research experiences revolved around individuals with developmental disabilities and severe problem behaviors, Dr. Gregory considers this application of behavior analysis to be her specialty. She thoroughly enjoyed her formal teaching experiences and looks forward to continuing to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for ABA with future students.
