The Recommendations - Acknowledgments
Interveners and Qualified Personnel
Prior to developing the recommendations, we spent about 6 months gathering information about the current status of intervener services across the country. During this process, we had great participation from families and professionals. You can read more about this in the acknowledgments section (http://interveners.nationaldb.org/acknowledgements.php), but I also wanted to post a short section from the introduction here:
“The work involved in developing these recommendations could not have been successfully implemented to date without the active support and involvement of hundreds of people across the country who generously gave their time and willingly shared their wisdom and experience.”
Furthermore, “these recommendations are presented with a well-deserved acknowledgement and extension of sincere gratitude to the many individuals across the country who pioneered the foundational infrastructures for intervener services that are currently in place. The recommendations presented here are an evolutionary extension of work begun by others. They are very much grounded on the work of passionate and successful leaders in the field of deaf-blindness who, for many years, led the charge in advocating for high-quality intervener services.”
