So Hyun “Sophy” Kim is a clinical researcher with an extensive background in the identification of early behavioral phenotypes and examining developmental trajectories of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). She has led collaborative efforts in developing a new language assessment tool, the Observation of Spontaneous Expressive Language (OSEL) and a new treatment outcome measure, the Brief Observation of Social Communication Change (BOSCC), in collaboration with Catherine Lord and colleagues.

Kim is one of the Principal Investigators on a National Institute of Mental Health–funded project designed to examine the mechanisms of early, parent-mediated interventions for toddlers with ASD (1R01MH114925-01). Most recently, Kim has led efforts to examine school readiness in kindergarteners with ASD while integrating behavioral and electrophysiological (event-related potentials and electroencephalography) methods, with a particular focus on executive function.
