​​Interveners play a critical role in the education of students who are deaf-blind, and it is important that they work under the supervision of licensed professionals. The purpose of this training is to help licensed professionals understand the importance of clear instructional plans for interveners. We’ll also discuss the critical nature of consistent, meaningful communication and collaboration, and address how the principles and practices of face-to-face supervision also apply to virtual supervision.


  • Participants will understand the importance of developing clear instructional plans for interveners and how to train interveners to effectively use them.
  • Participants will  know the components to include in lesson plans and how to write plans specifically for intervener use.
  • Participants will understand the importance of consistent and regular communication.
  • Participants will understand how to plan and administer meaningful and effective meetings and follow up communications.
