Dr. Kim is a clinical researcher with an extensive background in identification of early behavioral phenotypes and examining developmental trajectories of children with ASD. She has developed a new language assessment tool, the Observation of Spontaneous Expressive Language (OSEL), which is undergoing a national norm based on a partnership with the publisher, WPS, in collaboration with Dr. Catherine Lord. She has also led the development of new treatment outcome measures, the Brief Observation of Social Communication Change (BOSCC) and the Measure of NDBI Strategy Implementation-Caregiver Change (MONSI-CC) with Dr. Catherine Lord. Currently, she is a PI of an NIMH funded project designed to examine the mechanisms of early, parent-mediated interventions for toddlers with ASD (R01MH114925). Most recently, Dr. Kim has led efforts to examine school readiness in kindergarteners with ASD while integrating behavioral and electrophysiological (ERP/EEG) methods, with a particular focus on executive function.
