Open Hands Open Access: Deaf-Blind Intervention Modules

The Open Hands Open Access (OHOA) Intervener Learning Modules are a national resource designed to increase awareness, knowledge, and skills related to intervention for students who are deaf-blind and are being served in educational settings. In educational environments, intervener services are provided by an individual, typically a para educator, who has received specialized training in deaf-blindness and the process of intervention. When completed, the Open Hands Open Access Intervener Learning Modules will be comprised of 27 modules, each with a defined focus related to best practice in the education of students with Deaf-Blindness. First year participants/teams in PaTTAN’s OHOA Cohorts complete the first 8 modules during the course of a school year. If participants/teams wish to continue their engagement beyond the first year, additional modules are available, with each participant/team engaging in modules of their choice based on the educational needs of their student(s).
