Updating and Expanding the SIS-A
The Supports Intensity Scale – Adult Version (SIS-A) will be revised and re-normed for people with intellectual disability and related developmental disabilities. Additionally, the SIS-A’s applicability to new populations will be explored. Its usefulness to policymakers in regard to decision-making in HCBS Waiver programs as well as planning teams who are striving to identify and arrange supports for people with extraordinary support needs will also be investigated.
