Intervener Services Initiative

Intervener Services Initiative

For many children who are deaf-blind, intervener services in educational settings can provide access to learning, the general curriculum, educational environments, and teachers and peers. The purpose of NCDB's Intervener Services Initiative is to improve and expand intervener services throughout the U.S.
