Interpreter or Intervener: Which Will Meet the Educational Support Needs of Your Child? Webinar (November 13th)

When:  Wednesday, November 13th (8:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. EST)

An educational interpreter and intervener have overlapping roles in the classroom, which may cause confusion for parents of children with CHARGE syndrome, thus leading to challenges when advocating for the supports for school.


This presentation will explore the differences and the similarities in the roles and assist families in identifying which one is the best fit for their child’s needs. An overview of each role will be provided, including examples of how interpreters and interveners work with students who are deafblind in K-12 settings.


Participants will:

  1. Identify the differences and similarities between an educational interpreter and an intervener.
  2. Identify the principles behind the roles of an educational interpreter and intervener.
  3. Apply these concepts to the support needs of their child.


Registration is limited. Priority is given to members of the Foundation if the webinar is full. US & Canada Only
