No personal communication is included in your reference list; instead, parenthetically cite the communicator's name, the phrase "personal communication," and the date of the communication in your main text only.
Example: (E. Robbins, personal communication, January 4, 2001).
Example: A. P. Smith also claimed that many of her students had difficulties with APA style (personal communication, November 3, 2002).
