Intervenors are trained professionals who help facilitate communication, access, and participation in all parts of daily life for people who are Deafblind. They are narrators, informers, guides, and communicators. Taking direction from the person who is Deafblind, intervenors help enable communication and provide information about the physical environment.
An intervenor communicates with a person who is Deafblind using a variety of communication methods, including American Sign Language (both visual and tactile), two-hand manual, voiceover, print-on-palm, large-print notes and more.
Intervenor services truly change lives by creating hope, building confidence, increasing safety and independence - leading the way to a brighter future, and opening up a world of possibilities for people who are Deafblind across Canada.
