Session Detail

2020 Introduction to the Intervener Team Model

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, this workshop has been moved to an online format at a later date: November 13th, 2020

Interveners need specialized skills related to DeafBlindness in order to provide one-on-one instructional support to students who are Deafblind. They need appropriate supervision and support from the IEP team. To help meet the needs of interveners in Texas, the Texas Deafblind Project at Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired is pleased to announce the 2020 Introduction to the Intervener Team Model.

This workshop provides information for the intervener and the team on:
• DeafBlindness: Impact & Implications
• Intervener Competencies & Training Updates
• Intervener and Team Roles & Responsibilities
• The Five Components of Quality Intervention
• Intervention Issues & Considerations
• Identification of Tools and Strategies to Support the Student Profile.

NOTE: This is a training for team members who are working with a deafblind student who has been assigned an educational intervener or one on one professional.

Important Session Information:

This workshop is for those individuals who are newly assigned in the role as an Intervener, or for current interveners who have not yet had the opportunity to attend this introductory training.

Each intervener should attend this training with a professional member of the educational team (ideally the classroom teacher, but this could also be a teacher for the deaf and hard of hearing or teacher for students with visual impairments or another professional regularly involved with the deafblind student). Family members (parents or guardians) of the student are welcomed to attend, as well.
