This is a FREE online parent training focusing on the "Role of Interveners in Educational Setting".  It is primarily self-study but hosts are available to provide assistance. There will be several optional video sessions as well. The training will use Module 3 “The Role of Interveners in Educational  Settings” from the Open Hands Open Access (OHOA) Deaf-Blind Intervener Learning Modules. Parents will work at their own pace but commit to 1-2 hours of training each week for 5 weeks. 

Patti McGowan National Family Association for the Deaf and Blind (NFADB) and Peggy Malloy National Center on Deaf Blindness (NCDB) are hosting the training and will provide online support and feedback.

Parents will learn about:
