The Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB) is convening a focus group to explore state credentialing policy on interveners for the DeafBlind. This focus group resulted from the credentialing for educators of the deaf and blind workgroups, which were convened in 2020. This focus group was convened in conjunction with the educational interpreters for the deaf focus group.
An intervener helps a person with DeafBlindness gain access to environmental information, and facilitates communication.
Between meetings, focus group members are encouraged to communicate with their organizations and networks to receive input. Find policy background information on other roles related to educators of the deaf, blind, and DeafBlind.
