Michael Gordon, Ph.D. is Professor of Psychiatry, and former Chief Clinical Child Psychologist, Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services, and Director of the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders Program at a major Medical University in New York. Widely published in academic journals, he is author of the unique and highly acclaimed professional manuals entitled, How to Operate an ADHD Clinic or Subspecialty Practice and ADD/ADHD: A No-Nonsense Guide for Primary Care Physicians (with Martin Irwin, M.D.). For the general public, he has written the popular books, ADHD/Hyperactivity: A Consumer's Guide for Parents and Teachers, Jumpin' Johnny Get Back to Work!: A Child's Guide to ADHD/Hyperactivity, My Brother's A World‑Class Pain: A Sibling's Guide to ADHD/Hyperactivity, and I Would If I Could: A Teenager's Guide to ADHD/Hyperactivity. He co-authored with F. Daniel McClure, The Down and Dirty Guide to Adult ADD. He has also produced an animated video of his Jumpin' Johnny book.
In addition to his scholarly and clinical activities, Dr. Gordon is deeply involved in forensic issues, especially those that swirl around the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). He has written extensively about the relationship between psychiatry and disability determinations. With Ms. Shelby Keiser, he edited the book, Accommodations in higher education under the Americans with Disabilities Act: A no-nonsense guide for clinicians, educators, administrators, and lawyers. His book, ADHD on Trial: Courtroom clashes over the meaning of “Disability” was recently published by Praeger Publishers. With colleague Dr. Larry Lewandowski, he has developed a research program to explore the conceptualization and assessment of impairment in clinical populations. He also consults extensively with testing organizations, bar examiners, and academic institutions around legal accommodations.
Dr. Gordon developed a standardized test of attention and self‑control, the Gordon Diagnostic System, which is used internationally. He has also developed an effective non‑medical strategy for training children to be more attentive (the Attention Training System). Dr. Gordon is a recipient of the “Hall of Fame Award” presented by C.H.A.D.D., the national support organization for ADHD.
Finally, Dr. Gordon has published and lectured in the area of data-driven clinic management. His research on predictors of outcome, missed appointments, and non-billable clinical activities has served as a model for evidence-based strategies for the development of clinical systems. He has also presented on strategies for enhancing collaboration within a system of care as well as the use of computers and the web to deliver and streamline services.
