Jeff Gordon, PhD
Jeff Gordon is a fellow in the CDC's injury prevention program. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Behavioral Science at KU, working with advisor Dr. Glen White. As a graduate research assistant in the RTC/IL, he worked on the “CIL Services Effect on Community Participation” project under the Measurement and Interdependence in Community Living (MICL) grant and the dissemination of the Community Toolbox under the Community Living (CL) grant.
Gordon came to the University of Kansas from Houston, Texas, as an undergraduate in the Department of Applied Behavioral Sciences. He completed his B.S. in early childhood research and education under the advisorship of Dr. Greg Hanley. During this time, Gordon assisted in a variety of behavioral-based interventions exploring aggression, compliance, and program implementation with young children. At KU, Gordon completed his master's degree in Applied Behavioral Science in 2012. He completed the first part of his graduate studies under the advisorship of Dr. Keith Miller. He and Dr. Miller examined the implications of sustainable interventions in the public school system and home environments on children with severe developmental disabilities. During this time, Jeff also examined the effectiveness of assistive technology with individuals with developmental disabilities.
Gordon’s research interests include: enhancing community participation for people with disabilities and the effects of secondary conditions on community participation; the use of assistive technology to increase independence; and quantification of survey methods used in community-based data collection procedures.
