2018 National Child Count of Children and Youth Who Are Deaf-Blind Report

Educational Supports

Interveners are key players in providing access to a child or youth who is deaf-blind. They provide access to information, the environment, communication, and conceptual learning. While it is encouraging to see that 726 children and youth are receiving intervener services, it is also discouraging that this accounts for only 7% of the population. Continued efforts are needed to fully implement the 2012 Intervener Services Recommendations.
