I want to be an intervener for the deaf and blind. Where do I begin?

The role of an intervener is to act as the “eyes and ears” for individuals who are both deaf and blind. An intervener provides the visual and auditory information necessary to enable the person who is deafblind to interact with other people and their environment. Interveners are not caregivers. They assist children and adults with communication and life skills to become more independent. The philosophy of interveners is “do with, not for.”
