The Supports Intensity Scale (SIS)®
The Supports Intensity Scale (SIS)® is used to measure the frequency and intensity of supports an individual with an intellectual disability needs to meet quality of life goals. The SIS® is an instrument developed by the American Association of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD).
Virginia piloted the SIS® in various CSBs and Training Centers beginning in 2006. On April 1, 2009, the Commonwealth adopted the instrument as the statewide assessment tool for individuals on MR/ID and DS waivers. Here are resources for using and learning about the SIS®.
