Dr Law’s research interests focus on the life course of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) from preschool to adult years and the influences of family and child factors, including socioeconomic status (SES), parental psychopathology and health on developmental outcomes of children. Her current studies and grants examine a prediction model of ADHD diagnostic stability in preschoolers and trajectories of executive functioning among children from different SES and family backgrounds in the Growing Up in Singapore Towards healthy Outcomes (GUSTO) birth cohort study. She has a strong interest in the neurodevelopmental late effects of chronic medical conditions and prematurity in children. She strives to make a difference in the lives of children with a variety of developmental needs.
