This popular planning tool has revolutionized the world of developmental disability services. If there is one lesson learned since its launch in 2004, it is the critical necessity to train professionals in properly administering SIS so that the assessment scores truly reflect the support needs of people with disabilities. Since support services and financial planning decisions are linked to SIS scores, AAIDD has developed a robust, multi-tiered training program designed to develop reliable SIS interviewers and trainers.
