Patterns of Strengths and Weaknesses 3

The Humboldt County Office of Education will virtually host Jenny Ponzuric to deliver professional development for psychologists to assist school districts within the county in best practices related to the assessment of students under the classification of Specific Learning Disability and the implementation of the Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses (PSW) Model for SLD Identification.

Initial training in January will focus on:

  • Choosing an assessment battery that aligns with the PSW approach that also aligns with CA Education Code requirements and the reason for the referral
  • Navigation and interpretation of the PSW Approach’s aligned software (PPA)
  • Determining eligibility for special education under the PSW model


Follow-up training will focus on: 

  • Examination of dyslexia using the PSW model
  • Report writing
