Kaity Meagher (b. October 1, 1993) is an American Special education teacher, songwriter, former Nassau County Girl Scout and former member of Troop 2131.
In 2002, when she was nine years old, her youngest brother Matt, was born. Through Matt's toddler years, Kaity, her brother Chris and her parents realized that Matt wasn't quite up to speed with the other kids his age, and after many years of testing, speech and occupational therapy, they learned that Matt has ADHD, Auditory processing issues, and other qualities of various learning disabilities. Growing up with a brother who has special needs and who struggles when it comes to learning, had almost been natural for Kaity. Because of him, Kaity was able to understand what a child with special needs is feeling when others may not, and she's able to use certain techniques that she has learned from Matt to help them out as well.
In 2014, she wrote an original song titled “Until All the Pieces Fit,” to raise awareness and to support affected families that have children with special needs.
Kaity received her bachelor's degree in Special Education/Psychology from Marist College and received her master's degree from Hofstra University.
She is currently a teacher at The Hagedorn Little Village School in Seaford, New York.
