The State is working to improve and standardize the way people’s needs are assessed for the Developmental Disabilities Services Home and Community-Based Services Program. A new tool for completing the assessments will be used. This tool is called the Supports Intensity Scale-Adult Version (SIS-A™). The other change is that the State has hired an independent organization, Public Consulting Group, (PCG), to complete the assessments. On May 25, from 1-2pm, the State will provide more information about this change and PCG will provide an overview of the new tool to be used to complete assessments and the process for using it in Vermont’s Developmental Disabilities System. There will be an opportunity for questions.
