 Education & Classroom Accommodations

In Canada and parts of the United States, the use of Interveners (one-one-one aides specifically trained in the area of deafblindness) has made a dramatic and successful impact on educating students with deafblindness who previously were not making progress using existing teaching interventions and strategies.
