Personal profile

Hedda Meadan is a professor at the Department of Special Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a Goldstick Family Scholar, and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Hedda’s areas of interest include social-communication skills and challenging behavior of young children with autism and other developmental disabilities and intervention methods to enhance these spheres of functioning. Hedda and her colleagues have developed a parent-implemented intervention program designed to improve the social-communication skills of young children with disabilities who have very limited expressive language. Two of her current research projects focus on the use of technology to support service providers/therapists and families of children with disabilities. In the first project telehealth is used to coach service providers/therapists and family members form distance on evidence-based strategies to promote children social-communication skills. The purpose of the second project is to develop an app to help identify the function of and address challenging behavior of children with and without disabilities.
