Intervener vs. Intervenor

By Jaxson

  • Intervener

    An intervener is a person who works consistently one-to-one with an individual who is deaf-blind. Deafblindness is a low incidence disability that describes individuals with varying degrees of vision and hearing losses. The combined loss often compromises the ability to access information in the environment or to communicate effectively. Inverveners provide a vital link to the people, things and events in the world surrounding a deaf-blind person. Interveners provide services in educational settings for students, as well as in early intervention and community settings.
