An intervener provides consistent one-to-one support to a student who is deaf-blind or dual sensory impaired (ages 3 through 21) throughout the instructional day. Coursework is primarily completed in an online format, culminating with a 2-credit hour face-to-face practicum experience.
Are you interested in working with children and youth who have combined vision-hearing loss (aka deafblindness)? Would you like to work in a school as an aide for a student with deafblindness, or learn more about this topic en route to getting your associate degree or four-year Intervention Specialist: Mild-Moderate, Grades K-12 degree?
