Research Field(Keyword & Summary)
  1. (1) Developmental clinical psychology

    It is important for children to spend time adaptively in their daily lives. Therefore, we are studying the characteristics of cognitive ability of LD (learning disability), AD / HD (attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder), ASD (autism spectrum disorder), and the development process of individual treatment education. And providing the right education for the child is a necessary perspective not only for developmental disabilities but also for all children.

  2. (2) Psychoeducational assessment

    I have developed an evaluation tool that examines the development of social cognitive abilities in young children. "TOM (Theory of Mind) Test" created at that time is used by developmental counseling institutions.

  3. (3) Remedial education

    I am studying educational programs for children with developmental disabilities such as LD (learning disability), AD / HD (attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder), and ASD (autism spectrum disorder).
    Currently, I am using the iPad to educate children with developmental disabilities and study the possibilities and problems of using media devices.
