National Intervener Certification E-Portfolio (NICE) Development
NICE Development Process
Using the Council for Exceptional Children’s (CEC) knowledge and skill competencies for interveners, cohorts of interveners from diverse training programs documented their practice and offered feedback on the e-portfolio design. During this process, intervener participants received support and mentoring from participating state deaf-blind project partners, university experts, NCDB staff, and others as the system was developed, tested, and revised. Reviewers from the field of deaf-blindness were recruited to test and provide feedback on the scoring system.
