Become a Certified Intervener in just 4 online courses

Learn how to improve the educational outcomes for nearly 10,000 deafblind students.

Deafblind Interveners apply their skills to improve the educational outcomes for students from birth through age twenty-one who are deafblind. This program will prepare you to earn the national intervener credential through the National Resource Center for Paraeducators (NRCP).

National legislation is pending (the Alice Cogswell and Anne Sullivan Macy Act) requiring that students who are deafblind have access to trained and qualified interveners.

Now is the perfect time for you to complete your certificate, earn your national intervener credential, and fill this growing need.

The program is taught as an online cohort where you follow a set sequence of courses. Each course includes lab hours, requiring you to work on your final portfolio each semester. It is anticipated that most students already work with deafblind students. If this is not the case, you will be assisted in finding a placement by the Program Director.
