Promoting Teacher Use of the Supports Intensity Scale-Children's Version to Engage in Supports Planning to Enhance Access to the General Education Curriculum for Children with Intellectual Disability
The Supports Intensity Scale-Children’s Version (SIS-C) is a standardized assessment and valid means to measure the relative intensity of support needs of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, between ages 5 to 16.
This project will develop the SIS-C Supports Planning Process, an associated Teacher’s Manual, and an online Fidelity of Implementation System that will enhance the knowledge and skills of teachers to promote access to the general education curriculum for students with intellectual disability (ID). Educators need tools and strategies to enhance their knowledge and skills to use SIS-C assessment data to inform supports planning for students with ID in general education.
