Using the Supports Intensity Scale-Children's Version to Engage in Supports Planning to Enhance Access to the General Education Curriculum for Children with Intellectual Disability
This project, funded through the Department of Education’s Institute of Educational Sciences is focused on (a) creating a fully developed version of the SIS-C Supports Planning Process and an associated Teacher’s Manual for educators to use to plan supports for children with intellectual disability to access general education content and settings; (b) creating a fidelity of implementation system to assure the SIS-C Supports Planning Process is implemented correctly; and (c) collecting data in classroom settings to determine the usability and feasibility of the SIS-C Supports Planning Process and its promise for improving teachers’ knowledge, skills, and use of supplementary aids and services in the general education classroom, and students’ outcomes related to learning and participation.
