We heard your feedback that a change from the Supports Intensity Scale (SIS) was needed. DSPD adopted a new assessment for people in services called the Utah Comprehensive Assessment of Needs and Strengths (UCANS). This assessment will replace the SIS. The UCANS is a comprehensive assessment that looks at the whole person and works at any stage of life. The full assessment can be viewed here. We will be accepting feedback on this assessment until May 14, 2021. You can provide feedback by filling out this form or you can call (385) 272-1384. DSPD will carefully consider all comments and will make changes as appropriate before we begin using the UCANS with people we serve.


The Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD) promotes opportunities and provides supports for people with disabilities to lead self-determined lives by overseeing home and community-based services for more than 5,000 people who have disabilities.
Support includes community living, day services, supported employment services, and many more.
