Interveners: "Do With, Not For"

Who Are Interveners?

Interveners are paraprofessionals with specialized training in working with students who are DeafBlind. Interveners work 1:1 with students to provide access that allows for increased independence, improved communication skills, and the achievement of more educational outcomes.
