Language delay among young children,
Dr. King’s research focuses on enhancing the role of pediatric primary care in improving early developmental and school readiness outcomes for disadvantaged urban children. Her current projects aim to improve identification and referral of young children with developmental delays through implementation of high quality developmental screening and the establishment of closer relationships between primary care providers and community-based early childhood programs. Her other projects have included characterizing implementation of the Reach Out and Read Program and overseeing establishment of an accountability infra-structure for school readiness efforts across Baltimore City. Dr. King is currently supported by a Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Scholars Award, part of the NIH K12 Roadmap Initiative for career development in multidisciplinary clinical research.
