    Why Choose Jenny Ponzuric?

    Let’s Hear What Others Are Saying…

    “I have worked with Jenny for many years, and she is the gold standard for educational training.  Beyond Jenny’s extensive content knowledge of neuropsychology, dyslexia, and patterns of strengths and weaknesses models (among other things), she is a fabulous presenter. Jenny has a wonderful ability to break down complex concepts into understandable language. She also has great rapport with her audiences and individuals leave sessions with the ability to implement what they have learned beyond theoretical understanding. This is a powerful experience for administrators when training their staff.”

    Kristin M.

    “Jenny Ponzuric has presented in our county annually for many years as our districts have moved from the discrepancy model of specific learning disability eligibility to the patterns of strengths and weaknesses model. During that time she has also presented on a variety of topics related to dyslexia, student assessment, and report writing. I have personally sat in on several of these trainings and am always impressed by Ms. Ponzuric’s ability to take complicated information and make it not only easy to understand, but enjoyable to learn about! Her manner of presentation is relaxed but professional. The attendees get a real sense of knowing Ms. Ponzuric by the end of the session and often speak about her as a colleague or friend. Every year she receives consistently strong reviews with over 95% of the attendees indicating that they strongly agree that Ms. Ponzuric is responsive, organized, knowledgeable, an effective speaker, and holds the interest of the room. I am looking forward to her return to our county this year, and for years to come!”

    hi, i’m jenny ponzuric!

    I am a Licensed Educational Psychologist bringing my background in school psychology, university teaching, and training of special education team members to my business.

    Combining my education, experience, and dedication to students struggling in school, I consult, coach, and train educators that support them.

    Working in the field of school psychology for over 20 years, I expanded my knowledge and expertise in assessment by obtaining my post-graduate certificate in School Neuropsychology.

    Building on individual school site trainings, I also provide district-level and SELPA-level trainings on topics such as the Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses (PSW) Model for identification of Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), as well as, Multi-Tier System of Supports/Response to Instruction and Intervention (MTSS/RtI²).

    My expertise in learning and training expanded as an administrator in a county-wide teacher support services program that assisted special education teachers in clearing their credentials and obtaining added authorizations. Working collaboratively with a team, I wrote curriculum and trained teachers in areas such as behavior, literacy strategies, and a wide range of IDEA areas of eligibility.

    I have taught at numerous colleges and universities in Southern CA, including Pepperdine University, CSU Northridge, and Moorpark College; most recently, I was an adjunct professor in Phillip’s Graduate University’s School Psychology graduate program.

    I began working full-time in my business in January 2016 to follow my passion for assisting struggling students.
