Supports Intensity Scale (SIS) Interview
The SIS (Supports Intensity Scale) is an assessment that helps determine what services and supports an individual may need to live in the community. It also determines the amount of funding available for those services and supports. Unlike IEP (Individualized Education Program) meetings where you talk about your child’s strengths and needs, in this meeting you are talking about the assistance that your adult son or daughter requires to perform daily activities. The interview can vary in length, but on average you should expect approximately three hours.
