Dr. Cynthia Johnson named Fellow of the American Psychological Association


The honor is bestowed on the most accomplished contributors to the profession.

The Department of Clinical and Health Psychology offers congratulations to Dr. Cynthia Johnson, who has learned that she has been made a Fellow in Division 33 (Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities/Autism Spectrum Disorders) of the American Psychological Association. The official status begins January, 2016.

Division 33 is an organization of psychologists concerned with research and practice in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Fellow status is an honor bestowed upon APA members who have shown evidence of unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in the field of psychology. Fellow status requires that a person’s work has had a national impact on the field of psychology beyond a local, state or regional level. A high level of competence or steady and continuing contributions are not sufficient to warrant fellow status. National impact must be demonstrated.
