Dr. Kable's area of research interest have included understanding the developmental impact of exogenous and endogenous teratogens. Her work on exogenous teratogens has included investigations into the developmental impact of prenatal exposure to alcohol, tobacco, and cocaine. While her work on endogenous teratogens has focused on the impact of maternal metabolic disorders (i.e., PKU and MSUD) on fetal and child development. She has worked collaboratively with her colleagues in the Department of Pediatrics at EUSM on interventions for young women with metabolic disorders to improve adherence to prescribed dietary regimens.
Dr. Kable's developmental studies have focused on using neurophysiological responses to environmental events to assess the information processing skills of infants and using neurophysiological responses to assess arousal regulation in older children.
Dr. Kable is also involved in running an innovative intervention project for children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). This project is one of five sites funded by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention to initiate treatment research on interventions for children with FAS. The intervention includes training for parents and caregivers in the areas of knowledge regarding FAS, advocacy and techniques to improve behavioral regulation. In addition, half of the children in the project will receive individual tutoring in the area of math to facilitate their development.
Dr. Kable's clinical interests are in the areas of pediatric psychology, infant assessment and intervention, and factors influencing early neurodevelopment and future outcome.
