What are Intervener Services:
Intervener services are provided by an intervener, typically a paraprofessional, who 1) has received specialized training in deaf-blindness; 2) works one-on-one with an infant, child, or youth who is deaf-blind; and 3) serves as a member of a child’s educational team.

If you are a practicing intervener or have participated in intervener training and are serving a deaf-blind student or client, the NICE system is a way for you to present artifacts from your practice to reviewers who did not train and who do not know you.
