PENT was co-founded by Diana Browning Wright and Deborah Holt , in a joint effort between the Diagnostic Center, Southern California (DCSC) and the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). Diana served as the PENT Director from 2003-2009 and Deborah, as the Director of the Diagnostic Center, was the PENT Project Manager. Since that time both Diana and Deborah have retired from the Diagnostic Center. Diana can be reached at email@example.com.
