San Diego State University, and California Deafblind Services have collaborated to provide this online, university-based training program that prepares paraeducators to effectively serve learners who are deafblind. Trained interveners allow school districts and agencies to meet the unique, individualized support needs of students who benefit from intervention services.
Over the course of two semesters, students will engage in an online course of study that includes the rigorous and nationally recognized Open Hands, Open Access: Deaf-Blind Intervener Learning Modules.Through self-guided study, students will access the modules asynchronously, with three synchronous class meetings each semester.
Course instructors are deafblind specialists from SDSU and CDBS. This is a non-credit bearing university program. Upon successful completion of both courses, each participant will receive a university certificate of completion of the SDSU/CDBS Intervener Training Program.
