Answer

As per example 24 on page 204 in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (American Psychological Association, 2010), place the Jr. or III after the author's first initial in the reference. Place a comma between the period of the initial and the Jr. or III (p. 184). 

Example

Lastname, A., Jr. (year). Title of resource. Retrieved from URL

Don't include the Jr. or III in the in-text citation: (Lastname, year, p. X).

Reference

American Psychological Association. (2010). Publication manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). Washington, DC: Author.
