Dr. Kelly's research focus is on how early caregiving affects children's development, including children at high social risk, those diagnosed with delays and/or disabilities, and those developing typically. She developed and published a research- and practice-based program of preventive intervention to enhance parent-child relationships and produce better child outcomes. She is director of Promoting First Relationships, a prevention program dedicated to promoting children's social-emotional development through responsive, nurturing caregiver-child relationships. She is affiliated with NCAST Programs, a program that develops and disseminates research-based products and training to promote nurturing and responsive environments for children.
Kelly's research includes projects to promote quality parent-child interaction in homeless families, a relationship-focused early intervention research and training project to promote infant mental health, and studies of early child care for children with and without special needs.
