Supports Intensity Scale

Supports Intensity Scale (SIS®) 

Lapeer CMH uses the Supports Intensity Scale (SIS ®) as a standardized assessment tool for Persons Served 16 yrs. and older with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD).  The Supports Intensity Scale (SIS ®) will be completed at least once every 3 years.  We understand each person has unique preferences and needs; this assessment captures those needs, and will assist the treatment team in providing appropriate care for the Person Served. Assessors meet with the Person Served in the office or in the community to talk with the individual and those who know them best to find out what is most important in treatment and the supports needed to be successful in those areas.  The assessment usually takes 1.5 - 2.5 hours and the time invested is worth every minute to those we serve.
