Much like Annie Sullivan did for Helen Keller, an intervener opens the world for a child who is deafblind. The Deafblind Intervener Training Program at Utah State University provides specialized training in deafblindness that prepares students to work as interveners with individuals who are deafblind in school, home, and community settings.
This coursework (available for undergraduate or graduate credit or CEU's) is completely on-line. It is also useful for educators, parents, and others who work with children and youth who are deafblind. Upon completion of the program, students receive a certificate of completion of the program and can then apply for the National Intervener Credential.
