Brief Biography:
For over a decade (2004-2016), Ezra Lockhart maintained client practice and consultantships with multiple home healthcare agencies in the state of Alaska. He is a 25-year resident of Alaska with extensive rural village travel. Ezra Lockhart demonstrates a servant-leadership style with the natural inclination to serve first. He has a disposition towards listening and discerning, forgiveness and restorative justice, foresight and strategy, systems thinking, and building community.

Professional Experience:
Ezra possesses the rare blend of high people skills and high technical skills. He aids numerous individuals who experience a wide range of physical, cognitive, and behavioral challenges. In 2004, he began by assisting adults with various physical disabilities. In 2011, he specialized in providing home- and community-based behavioral supports for children and adults who live on the autism spectrum. In 2014, he expanded to provide milieu and group therapy in residential setting for youth coping with behavioral and/or chemical dependency issues. MORE>>

Career Goals:
Since autism is the fastest growing pervasive developmental disability, I certainly believe there will be great need for all types of therapists to help with autism diagnosed people over the next several generations. Unfortunately, with numbers like 1:45 children (CDC, 2014), new therapeutic methodologies and techniques cannot come soon enough for families and their loved ones dealing with this diagnosis.

My goals are to (a) increase my understanding of clinical and technology methods relevant to providing services to individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD); (b) improve my ability to assess and critically evaluate research literature pertaining to health, disability, social cognition, and human-computer interaction; (c) contribute to this body of knowledge; and (d) employ research-informed and evidence-based practices to ameliorate my standard of care.
