Supports Intensity Scale

​​​​​​​​​​The Supports Intensity Scale® (SIS) is a tool designed to measure the amount of support a person with intellectual or developmental disabilities needs to participate fully in their community.

In the NC Innovations Waiver system, all individuals are required to complete a SIS assessment. The SIS should be used with person-centered planning processes to help planning teams develop in​dividual support plans that are responsive to the needs and choices of individuals with disabilities.
