SIS Assessment Video – Comments from People & Families

People and families living with developmental disabilities in Ontario have had strong opinions about the Supports Intensity Scale (SIS) being used as a way to assess people applying for supports and services. Other jurisdictions, including the Province of Alberta, have stopped using this assessment tool, favouring more respectful approaches to assessing the supports that people need for the life they hope to live.  Kory Earle was President of People First of Canada at the time this video was recorded. Kory and three local parent leaders, mothers from Windsor and Essex County, share their thoughts openly and candidly.
