          The Supports Intensity Scale® (SIS®) is a progressive, state-of-the-art assessment tool that helps professionals evaluate practical support requirements of a person with an intellectual disability, and plan services accordingly. Currently adopted in numerous states and countries, SIS is the only tool to provide a clear and comprehensive picture of what the client wants and what supports it takes to fulfill goals and aspirations.

The scale ranks each activity measured according to frequency (none, at least once a month), amount (none, less than 30 minutes), and type of support (monitoring, verbal gesturing).

          The User’s Manual explains how to administer the Supports Intensity Scale, interpret raw scores, and use SIS in creating person-centered plans.

                              • The Death Penalty and Intellectual Disability

                                This book is the authoritative resource on the application of diagnostic information concerning intellectual disability (ID) in death penalty cases. In a landmark decision in Atkins v. Virginia in 2002, the Supreme Court ruled that executing someone with ID is a violation of the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. In its 2014 decision, Hall v. Florida, the Court ruled that, while states have the right to establish their own rules for handling Atkins cases, they cannot ignore scientific and medical consensus regarding intelligence and the nature and diagnosis of ID. The Court rejected the use of an IQ test score of 70 as a bright-line cutoff for determining ID and ruled that all evidence pertinent to the claim, including adaptive behavior assessments, should be considered.

                                This publication provides a comprehensive and cogent resource for the use of the range of professionals involved in the determination process for intellectual disability within the criminal justice system. The following are among the critical topics addressed: foundational considerations, including diagnostic criteria, the definition of ID, the analyses of Atkins cases; assessment considerations; intellectual functioning, including IQ testing and the Flynn effect; adaptive behavior; and related topics, such as cultural and linguistic factors, competence to waive Miranda rights and to stand trial, retrospective diagnosis, malingering, comorbid disorders, educational records, and professional issues.

                                  Over the course of the past several decades, the disability field has made steady progress in moving toward systems of supports for people with intellectual disability and increased self-determination in life choices. However, meaningful, competitive employment in the community on a large scale is a goal that is yet to be realized. This book looks at the current status of our efforts to achieve this goal by examining the following areas: emerging best practices in employment, the return-to-work process for disability beneficiaries, transition planning, vocational assessment and preparation, supports in competitive employment, postsecondary education, service learning, and planning and supporting employment.

                                  • A History and Sociology of the Willowbrook State School

                                    The Willowbrook State School is an important part of the history of disabilities in the United States and is regarded by some as the “ground zero” of the disabilities civil rights movement. This informative text describes in great detail what life was like for the people who lived and worked at Willowbrook and how and why the institution evolved as it did. The focus is primarily on the period before Geraldo Rivera’s sensational television exposé in 1972.

                                    A History and Sociology of the Willowbrook State School explores a general history of disabilities and institutions and increasingly concentrates on the “medicalization” of disability, which was the impetus for the creation of large-scale institutions. The early history of institutions in New York State, New York City, and Staten Island is adroitly presented as a backdrop that allows the authors to showcase the particulars of Willowbrook itself.

                                    Beyond historical context, the reader is introduced to the sociology of institutions. Through the use of poignant first-hand observations and testimonials on life at Willowbrook, the authors provide readers a better understanding of the seemingly counterintuitive interpersonal dynamics and interactions that are part and parcel of life and work in institutional settings.

                                      In 2005, AAIDD published the first edition of Clinical Judgment to assist clinicians in making decisions or recommendations that were of high quality, valid, and precise. This need was becoming increasingly important as the field of intellectual disability was moving to a community-based service delivery system in which the concepts of equity, inclusion, self-determination, and empowerment were merging with the supports paradigm and the self-advocacy movement. Thus, clinicians were being asked to formulate high-stakes decisions and recommendations that frequently required a level of competency that extended beyond their formal training. In this second edition, the authors maintain their focus on the use of clinical judgment in situations involving diagnosis, classification, and planning supports. In addition they have synthesized evaluative input from colleagues and literature-based critiques and have extended their analysis and evaluation of the role of clinical judgment in decision making.

                                          The SIS measures life activities in home living, community living, lifelong learning, employment, health and safety, social activities, and protection and advocacy. The scale ranks each activity measured according to frequency (none, at least once a month), amount (none, less than 30 minutes), and type of support (monitoring, verbal gesturing).

                                          The User’s Manual explains how to administer the Supports Intensity Scale, interpret raw scores, and use SIS in creating person-centered plans.
