Assessment Findings for Persons with Developmental Disabilities Served in Residential Habilitation Centers and Community Settings

This report expands upon analyses conducted with more limited assessment data published in early 2010. The assessments of support needs are from: 1) the Supports Intensity Scale (SIS), a measure of support needs specifically designed for individuals with developmental or similar disabilities, and 2) acuity scales based on the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) Support Assessment that are designed to measure level of risk or urgency of need for care. The current report updates the earlier findings using more complete assessment data that have since become available for Residential Habilitation Center (RHC) clients.
