Have you heard of the Supports Intensity Scale (SIS) that was developed by the American Association of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) in 2004? Unlike adaptive behavior instruments like the ABAS-II or Vineland-2 that measure the level of independence in various Conceptual, Social, and Practical skills, the SIS is used to measure the frequency and intensity of "supports" an individual with an intellectual disability needs to live a successful life in society. It is appropriate to use with individuals who are 16 years or older, which includes senior high school students with an intellectual disability. It compliments the Individual Transition Planning (ITP) process as it addresses what is important to and for the individual. Topics include (a) home and community living, (b) life long learning, (c) employment, (d) health and safety activities, (e) social activities, (f) protection and advocacy, (g) medical supports, and (h) behavioral supports.
