In May of 2016, the DDA launched the Supports Intensity Scale (SIS®) assessment tool. The SIS® measures the person’s support needs in personal, work-related, and social activities in order to identify and describe the types and intensity of the supports an individual requires. SIS® was designed to be part of person-centered planning processes that help all individuals identify their unique preferences, skills, and life goals.
The following links provide an overview of the HRST and some details about how it will be implemented in Maryland.
