For over 25 years, The Intervenor Organization of Ontario (IOO) has been dedicated to promoting and professionalizing the field of intervenor services. As the first and only organization of its kind in Canada, the IOO believes that through increased awareness, standards, training, and understanding of the role of the intervenor and the process of intervention, this will lead to better quality of services for all individuals who are deafblind, who are at the forefront of all that we do.
The role of the intervenor is an incredibly diverse, exciting, and challenging one, and the IOO is pleased to provide resources, support, and a sense of unity for all intervenors to ensure services for individuals who are deafblind are delivered with passion, knowledge, and understanding. Through providing professional development and training opportunities, a strong Code of Ethics, and a blog to provide a platform for sharing information, the IOO continually strives to meet the needs of its members and ensure highest quality of services.
If you are an individual who is deafblind, family member, or other professional working in a team setting with an intervenor or supporting an individual who is deafblind, the IOO can provide awareness of the role of the intervenor, expectations of the role of the intervenor, and resources and information that may be of assistance when working with an intervenor, whether it is your first time or you are seasoned in working with intervenors.
