Intervenors require specialized skills such as American Sign Language, Adapted Signed Language and other communication techniques so that they can meet the unique needs of a person who is deafblind.

Intervenor candidates may receive training through the Intervenor for Deafblind Persons program at George Brown College or gain expertise through ongoing training and professional development within their organization.

Can you become an Intervenor if you come from a different educational background/career path?

Many Intervenors have chosen a career in Intervenor services after working in fields such as developmental services, ASL/English or LSQ/French Interpreters, social services, recreational therapy and nursing.

Individuals who transition to Intervenor Services can draw on their skills and experience from other sectors working with individuals who are living with a disability.
