Open Hands Open Access Intervener Learning Modules Related to Students who are Deaf-Blind

Uploaded: April 30, 2018 |  0 Comments  | 

The primary purpose of the modules was to provide a resource for the acquisition of specialized skills for paraeducators working with students with deaf-blindness functioning in the role of the intervener. An intervener provides a bridge to the world for the student who is deafblind. The intervener helps the student gather information, learn concepts and skills, develop communication and language, and establish relationships that lead to greater independence. The intervener is a support person who does with, not for the student. The module content was created by a diverse group of experts in the field of deaf-blindness including state and national deaf-blind project staff, parents of children who are deaf-blind, higher education faculty,teachers, educational interpreters, and interveners.
