New Year, New Career at DeafBlind Ontario Services

DRUCKEN

NEWMARKET, ON, Jan. 2, 2019 /CNW/ - Following the countdown, many begin the new year with the best of intentions. With 365 days of possibilities ahead, each new year presents a fresh slate and a time to set goals.

Resolutions that lead to meaningful change are rewarding and self-fulfilling. If you are searching for an opportunity to learn, grow, and contribute to another person's quality of life, consider pursuing a career as an intervenor.

Intervenors are specially trained professionals who act as the "eyes" and "ears" of the individual who is deafblind through the sense of touch. Deafblindness is a combined loss of vision and hearing to such an extent that neither sense can be used as a means of accessing information. This can impact communication, mobility, and a sense of inclusion in one's community.

Intervenors work with individuals who are deafblind, helping them learn through experience, empowering them to make informed decisions and be active participants in all areas of their lives. "DeafBlind Ontario Services offers a holistic approach, to empower each individual who is deafblind to achieve as much independence as possible," says Sarah, one of DeafBlind Ontario Services' intervenors.

Intervenors work in a variety of settings, in the community, residential or educational settings. Intervenors are leaders, problem solvers, and team players. They may be called on to employ their creativity and flexibility, and should be comfortable working closely with others.

Holly has worked as an intervenor at DeafBlind Ontario Services ever since graduating from the Developmental Services Worker (DSW) program at Loyalist College four years ago. "I am so honoured to support people who are deafblind. I feel a strong bond with each of the individuals I support; it is important to me to emphasize their strengths, abilities, and ultimately help them to achieve as much independence as possible," says Holly.

Whether you are graduating from high school or a post-secondary institution, or even considering a second career, exploring a role as an intervenor might be the solution for you. DSW, PSW, or SSW certifications are ideal credentials. However, DeafBlind Ontario Services will provide necessary training to individuals without these certifications too.

DeafBlind Ontario Services strives to be a top employer in the field by investing in their employees through extensive training, mentoring, and other professional development opportunities throughout all levels of the organization. DeafBlind Ontario Services has been awarded the designation of Nonprofit Employer of Choice two times, in 2015 and 2016. The Nonprofit Employer of Choice Awards (NEOC) recognizes organizations whose people leadership and vision has translated into exemplary talent management practices.

Intervenor Services is a sector that is currently experiencing growth and there is a shortage of trained intervenors. George Brown College's two-year program, Intervenor for Deafblind Persons, is currently the only in Ontario.

DeafBlind Ontario Services is hiring intervenors across the following areas:
Ayr
Barrie
Embrun
Georgina
Kitchener
London
Oshawa
Ottawa
Peterborough

DeafBlind Ontario Services is a not-for-profit organization that helps individuals who are deafblind to increase their independence and improve their quality of life through specialized services. With programs across the province, their reach extends into a wide range of communities in Ontario.
