What is NICE?

The National Center on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB) and the Paraprofessional Resource and Research Center (PAR2A Center), with support from the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), are pleased to announce a national certification system for interveners. The National Intervener Certification E-portfolio (NICE) System is an assessment process that interveners can use to submit evidence of their knowledge and skills. The evidence, which consists of digital documentation such as video samples, described pictures, and other documents from the intervener’s training and practice, is evaluated by expert reviewers in the field of deaf-blindness. The process is aligned with the Council for Exceptional Children's (CEC) Knowledge and Skills Competencies for Interveners

Applying for NICE Certification: Policies and Procedures

Portfolios are scored by at least two trained reviewers who are members of the NICE Review Board. All certification determinations are made by the Paraprofessional Resource and Research Center, which manages portfolio submissions, the NICE Review Board, and scoring.
