LEROY HAYNES EDUCATION CENTER 2011 GRADUATION
A graduating class of seven students, receiving their high school diplomas today (Thursday, June 9) during
annual graduation ceremonies at the Haynes Education Center on the campus of LeRoy Haynes Center in La
Verne, enjoyed what LeRoy Haynes Center Board member Bob Mason, of R.H. Mason Insurance Managers in
Claremont, called "a special moment" and "a beginning of a lifetime of learning." "That learning will
strengthen who you are," he added, "so get out there and make it happen. We're all very proud of you."
Teacher of the Year Margarita Olado, in her address to the graduates, urged the students to "understand your
uniqueness" and cautioned against allowing people to "judge you by the things you cannot do" but by what
they can do -- "because you can do a lot." "Today you will use all you have learned in this school," she added.
Julie Stride, 22, of San Dimas, who her mother, Jeanine Stride, described as having high-functioning autism
and obsessive-compulsive disorder, graduated after working on her high school credits for the past eight
years. Julie, who was the first student in the LeRoy Haynes Center School for Autism, said "a part of me is
going to miss the school (but) another part is going to say it is time that I moved on." Jeanine Stride urged
parents of children who have autism to find the right school for their children, adding that the local school
district has an obligation to place the student in an appropriate school. "I think LeRoy's is just excellent," she
said, "and they've come so far." She admitted, however, that graduation in Julie's case "is going to be a very
difficult move" but "I think it's a positive." Chris Craft, 18, of La Verne, said "it feels all right" to be graduating
from the Haynes Education Center, adding that he plans to continue in school at the community college level
working toward his career goal of a position in a coroner's office.

PT RIVER RUN DONATES CHECK TO LEROY HAYNES CENTER
 Representatives of the PT River Run, an annual
car show held in Laughlin, NV, for PT Cruisers,
visited the LeRoy Haynes Center in La Verne
today (Tuesday, May 17) to present a check for
$1,000 to help fund programs for the young
people living, attending school or receiving
treatment at the center. Funds for the check
were raised at the eighth annual PT River Run,
held in March. The LeRoy Haynes Center has
been the designated charity for the PT River Run
for the past seven years. "With this economy,
unfortunately, our participation in the car show
is not as good as it has been the past years," said
PT River Run President and Founder Dave Davidson. "So the donation is not as high as it has been before. But
we are happy to be able to donate this check." Pictured, from left, are PT River Run volunteers Mara Karsen,
Davidson, Grant Shockley, Wayne Zehner and Betty Zehner, and, representing LeRoy Haynes Center, Director of
Development Jane Woods and President and CEO Dan Maydeck. Betty Zehner, also known as "Bingo" Betty,
organizes the PT River Run Bingo games at the annual event in which she donates all prizes and donates 100
percent of all Bingo card sales to the LeRoy Haynes Center. Some 120 cars participated in this year's rally. The
group has attracted as many as 300 in past years. For more information about the PT River Run, visit
www.ptriverrun.com. The LeRoy Haynes Center provides specialized treatment and educational services to
children with special needs relating to emotional development, autism, Asperger's Disorder, learning disabilities,
neglect and abandonment. The facility serves 350 to 400 children annually through its three basic programs --

 BEHAVIORAL, SPEECH EXPERTS TEAM UP AT FIRST IN THREE-PART 'MINI SERIES' ON AUTISM
 Boyd Bradshaw spoke on difficult behavior
 at a free workshop at LeRoy Haynes Center
 on Thursday, March 24, the first in a three-
 part "mini series" on behavior
 management, sensory processing and
 behavioral techniques. "Until you
 understand why your child has the
 behavior, you are not going to change it,"
 said Bradshaw, a behavioral support
 specialist whose firm, HCDD, Inc., in the City
 of Orange, provides specialized residential
 services to handicapped children and
 adults. In addition, he said, "you don't stop
 behavior from happening -- you change the behavior." He added that even then, you can only change behavior
 after you understand the "why" of, for example, the temper tantrum. Bradshaw said this principle applies even if
 the child is unable to talk at all, as is the case with his own 17-year-old son who has autism. Bradshaw's wife,
 Lisa, at left, a veteran licensed speech language pathologist, is joining Bradshaw in the series to focus on
 behavior management, sensory processing and specific behavioral and sensory techniques to address difficult
 behaviors. She is CEO and therapist at SenseAbilities, LLC in Riverside, a clinic she developed to provide speech
 and occupational therapy within a sensory integration framework. The series was designed for parents and
 teachers of children who have or may have autism. The next workshop in the series is scheduled for 6 p.m. on
 April 28. The LeRoy Haynes Center provides specialized treatment and educational services to children with
 special needs relating to emotional development, autism, Asperger's Disorder, learning disabilities, neglect and
 abandonment. For more information, call (909) 593-2581.
