Research My Research

The work of my group has focused on the problems of poor immigrant families living in urban environments. We have studied the effects of family homelessness on growth of development and health status of children. We have looked at the effect of environmental toxins, such as lead, on early childhood development. And we have tested low-intensity clinic-based interventions that have the potential to improve early childhood language and cognitive development as well as parent-child interactions. To find out more about our important NIH-funded research, go to http://pediatrics.med.nyu.edu/developmental/research/the-belle-project

Recently, we have begun looking at the effect of media violence on child behavior, and have begun to test interventions to decrease childhood obesity through a focus on parenting in early childhood. Finally, we are looking at novel methods to improve parent understanding by the use of pictograms and plain language materials to communicate with parents with low health literacy.

Major Areas of Investigation
*Interventions to promote cognitive and language development in early childhood among poor children.
*Prevention of childhood obesity.
*The effect of media violence on early childhood behavior.
*Health literacy of parents and children and its effect on patient outcomes, as well as interventions to improve patient outcomes in families with low health literacy
