Subject Re: Canadian Interveners

Hello Stuart. California Deaf-Blind Services doesn't hire interveners directly because, as a technical assistance and training project, it isn't our role. California has a complex system of school districts, county offices of education, and SELPAs (Special Education Local Plan Areas). These are the agencies that provide direct services, and these agencies would hire staff based on needs identified for specific students through the IEP process. I would be glad to talk to you more about our system here in California and answer any questions you have.
