It also can be used to inform other recommendations pertaining to the provision of personalized supports and human services. This session will be relevant to the practice of social workers and psychologists who work with people with IDD and their families. The purpose of this session is to provide users an overview of the reasons for developing the SIS-A Annual Review Protocol and Facilitator’s Guide, research findings that support the Protocol’s content, descriptions of each of the protocol’s sections, and guidance for those facilitating the review process.
