For Partners


National Intervener Certification E-Portfolio (NICE) For Partners

Information for State Deaf-Blind Projects and University Partners

The National Center on Deaf-Blindness, as a federally-funded national technical assistance center, has the responsibility of providing support to any interested state deaf-blind project or university partners who would like to use the NICE system with interveners. The goals of the technical assistance include the following:
  • Increased opportunities for interveners to demonstrate attainment of national competencies through certification
  • Increased support to state deaf-blind projects and university partners to assist them in developing or expanding networks of trained interveners and mentors
  • Increased recognition for the intervener services model and the role of professionals in supporting interveners
Technical assistance is tailored to the needs of the state project or university partner. In addition, state projects and university partners have access to:
  • Two NICE training modules to host groups of interveners and mentors to learn about the NICE process 
  • A private online community of practice related to intervener services for peer-to-peer conversations and problem solving, with support from NCDB
Interested state deaf-blind project or university partners should contact Kristi Probst.
