Training for Sensity Employees:

Sensity prioritizes the continuous development of its employees through a robust training program. New hires, regardless of their role, undergo comprehensive training about the organization’s values, the uniqueness of deafblindness, and their specific roles. Intervenors and Intervenor Services Coordinators receive approximately 70 hours of training, through a combination of in-person and virtual sessions. Our training sessions include simulation activities, which provide employees with a firsthand experience of deafblindness. While primarily geared towards employees, these sessions are available to family members and those individuals considering a career as an Intervenor.

Professional Development Opportunities:

At Sensity, we recognize the importance of ongoing professional development. We actively support our employees in attending conferences, webinars, and workshops related to deafblindness and sensory loss. Additionally, we offer free registration for Sensity’s online courses and educational assistance funding for qualified employees engaging in third-party professional development opportunities.

Our employees have attended conferences hosted by Deafblind International (DbI), Deafblind Network of Ontario (DBNO) and the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation. Sensity also offers a leadership development course, the Sensity Leadership Institute, for employees interested in enhancing their leadership skills.

We encourage our staff to become members of relevant organizations, such as the Intervenor Organization of Ontario and Deafblind International and are proud of those who have served on the boards of these and other organizations. At Sensity, we believe that ongoing education and professional development are essential components of ensuring the highest quality of support for individuals who are deafblind.
