Pathways Teacher Lori Johnson Awarded a Dougie Award

J. Arthur Trudeau Memorial Center is proud that Lori Johnson was recently awarded a Dougie Award by the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. The Dougie Awards were initiated this year by the Flutie Foundation to recognize leaders in the autism community. Nominated by her peers, Lori Johnson — a supervisor educator at Pathways Strategic Teaching Center —selflessly chose to donate her $250.00 award to Pathways.

Lori has been working at Pathways for 13 years and is happy to have fulfilled her lifelong dream of being a teacher. Lori shared, “I have always wanted to be an educator and I love working with children. I believe in the Pathways program and have witnessed firsthand how much progress, educationally and behaviorally, my students have made utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis.”

Lori’s nomination was filled with accolades from her colleagues, but her enthusiasm, exceptional work ethic, and passion for teaching truly shined through.

“Lori puts her heart and soul into making sure each one of her student’s distinct needs are met as well as their strengths showcased,”

Mackenzie Milner, Pathways Clinical Director.

Lori’s favorite subject to teach is reading, and both parents and students are fans of her teaching expertise. Pathways parent Tori Marie explained, “Ms. Lori is more invested in my son’s success than anyone else he’s ever worked with. He has made so much progress in the past few years thanks to her tireless dedication, efforts and enthusiasm!”

Congratulations to Lori Johnson

We could not agree more. Pathways and the Trudeau Center are lucky to have Lori Johnson as such an integral part of the team and thank her for her dedication and zest for teaching and learning. Outside of work, Lori enjoys love spending time with her family, going out to breakfast with her nephews, listening to music, and working with animals.

Trudeau Center Receives CPR Package from East Greenwich Veteran Fireman’s Club

J. Arthur Trudeau Memorial Center recently received a CPR training package from a generous donation made by the East Greenwich Veteran Fireman’s Club of Rhode Island. The package contains infant and adult CPR mannequins and is an important and life-saving addition to our employee training instruction. 

The Trudeau Center and the East Greenwich Veteran Fireman’s Club boast a long and wonderful history. For over 20 years, the Club has hosted Trudeau’s adults with developmental disabilities for annual Halloween, holiday and summer parties. “Parties at the Club,” as many Trudeau folks have come to define them, are a tradition that Trudeau and the Club look forward to every year. Due to the pandemic, these celebrations have not occurred, so the East Greenwich Veteran Fireman’s Club made a generous donation to the Trudeau Center instead.

East Greenwich Fireman’s Club Volunteers

“The Club counts the Trudeau Center holidays as a highlight of our year. We have missed seeing these amazing people and thought a donation may help, until we can all get together again,” said Jim Troiano, President of the East Greenwich Veteran Fireman’s Club.

While the Trudeau Center did own one CPR training package, this new package will be located at Pathways Strategic Teaching Center, our educational and treatment program servicing children with autism and related disorders. “The Club’s unwavering support over the years has allowed the Trudeau Center to make a positive difference in the lives of so many people with disabilities. We have all enjoyed the events that the Club has hosted, and the kindness and community support the members provide. We thank them for their generosity and look forward to celebrating in-person there soon,” says President and CEO Judith Sullivan.

Parties at “The Club”

 Please consider giving to the Trudeau Center.
