About This Degree
Much like Annie Sullivan did for Helen Keller, an intervener opens the world for a child who is deafblind. The Deafblind Intervener Training Program at Utah State University provides specialized training in deafblindness that prepares students to work as interveners with individuals who are deafblind in school, home, and community settings. This coursework (available for undergraduate or graduate credit) is also useful for educators, parents, and others who work with children and youth who are deafblind. Upon completion of the program, students receive a certificate of completion of the program and can then apply for the National Intervener Credential through the National Resource Center for Paraeducators.
The Emma Eccles Jones College of Education & Human Services may charge differential tuition for this program. Differential tuition is an added cost per credit for courses in the program. See the last page in the USU Tuition & Fee schedule for more information.
