An intervener is a paraprofessional who provides direct support to a student with deafblindness for all or part of the instructional day.  The intervener receives training in communication methods and sensory accommodations that are needed for an individual student with deafblindness to access information in various learning environments.  

In Texas, interveners are used in both educational settings and community settings working for school districts, agencies and families.
