Asst Prof Nataly Lim
Assistant Professor, National Institute of Education - Psychology and Child & Human Development
Dr. Lim holds a Ph.D. in Special Education with a focus on Autism and Developmental Disorders from the University of Texas at Austin and is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA-D). With a strong dedication to both research and practical applications, Dr. Lim's interests lie in exploring best practices for culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families. She is particularly passionate about ensuring equitable services for underrepresented children with ASD and their families, aiming to address disparities and promote inclusive and effective interventions. Recognizing the crucial role that parents play in supporting their child's development, Dr. Lim's focus also extends to parent-mediated interventions for CLD children with ASD. Within the context of Singapore, Dr. Lim is interested in the intersection of bilingualism and ASD. By examining this intersection, she seeks to contribute to a better understanding of how to support the development of bilingual individuals with ASD within a multicultural and multilingual society.
