Meghan Burke, Ph.D., BCBA-D, is an associate professor of special education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her research interests include parent advocacy, families (i.e., parents and siblings) of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), and disability policy. Dr. Burke’s research examines how parents advocate for services for their offspring with IDD. Specifically, Dr. Burke has developed advocacy interventions to enable parents of individuals with IDD to advocate not only for their own offspring but also for other families. Dr. Burke’s advocacy training interventions have been replicated in six states. Additionally, Dr. Burke conducts research examining how siblings of individuals with disabilities transition to caregiving roles. Specifically, Dr. Burke is interested in developing interventions to facilitate these transitions.
