Intervener Services

The concept of intervener services for individuals who are deaf-blind arose in Canada in the 1970s and has been developing as a practice in the U.S. over ther past several decades. Intervener services are provided by an intervener, typically a paraprofessional, who 1) has received specialized training in deaf-blindness; 2) works one-on-one with an infant, child, or youth who is deaf-blind; and 3) serves as a member of a child's educational team.
