Everyone in Pennsylvania with a waiver is required to have a SIS assessment upon receiving waiver and every 5 years after that. SIS stands for Supports Intensity Scale, and it’s an assessment that documents how much assistance someone needs throughout various areas of daily life. There are questions about health and safety, cooking, traveling, education, and many other areas. An outside agency handles the scheduling and assessment, but your SC is involved in the process.
