Lewis Bonney has twenty years of experience teaching school psychology courses in research methods and assessment of pupil’s eligibility for special services. The research courses guide students in collecting original data pertinent to a research question and culminate in a publication-ready manuscript. The assessment courses focus on cross battery assessment and drafting reports that address eligibility criteria in a parent-friendly manner.

At APU, Dr. Bonney co-led representatives from six different academic disciplines in providing Clergy Care Day, an outreach to local clergy in the areas of physical, mental and spiritual wellness.

Before taking a position at APU, Dr. Bonney practiced school psychology for fifteen years and served for seven years as Assistant to the Superintendent for Program Management and Development in a large urban school district.
