Alumni feature – Lonnie Sears, PhD

I am a Psychologist and Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the University of Louisville School of Medicine in Louisville, KY. My primary area of interest is autism and I am involved in clinical services, research, and teaching in developmental disabilities at U of L. My time at Goshen College set my career path as a result of a practicum at ADEC where I became interested in developmental disabilities. More importantly, Duane and Vic helped me think about how faith relates to psychology and my work. I also appreciate the critical thinking skills that were emphasized leading to an appreciation of “evidenced-based” practice in my work as a psychologist.
