Please join the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, for a free webinar called “Interpreter or Intervener: Which Will Meet the Educational Support Needs of Your Child?” Educational interpreters and interveners have overlapping roles in the classroom, which may cause confusion for parents of children with CHARGE Syndrome and thus challenges when advocating for supports at school. This presentation will explore the differences and similarities in the roles to assist families in identifying which one is the best fit for their child’s needs. An overview of each role will be provided, including examples of how interpreters and interveners work with students who are deafblind in K-12 settings. Presenters: Susanne Morgan Morrow – Director, New York Deaf-Blind Collaborative Beth Kennedy – Director, DeafBlind Central: Michigan’s Training & Resource Project and the DeafBlind Intervener Training Program at Central Michigan University For more information about this and other upcoming webinars being offered by the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation, go to: https://www.chargesyndrome.org/for-families/resources/webinars/
