Training model for future interveners not yet attached to a student - how?
Interveners and Qualified Personnel
Hello everybody - I want to pick your brains on this. A community college would like to develop a certificate in DeafBlindness. All would take a class in DB 101-type information, then they would get to choose the child or adult strand. the child strand would eventually lead to the intervener certificate, and the adult strand could also lead to the certificate, and work as an SSP or VASP, or both. BUT - there people might not yet be working with a family or school or child - so the traditional intervener training model would need to be tweaked to allow for the scholar to be connected to a child, develop a relationship, and THEN develop skills and work on a practicum. Has anybody had experience in a situation or program like this? Even with one individual? What were the timelines? Thanks for any ideas for a possible new model...
