Substance Abuse Screener in American Sign Language (SAS-ASL)
Do you work with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community? The Substance Abuse Screener in American Sign Language (SAS-ASL) is a psychological measure specifically developed in American Sign Language and validated to screen for substance use disorders among adult Deaf and/or hard of hearing clients in vocational rehabilitation, mental health, and social service settings.
Derived from the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI), the SAS-ASL features include:
- accuracy, brevity, and ease of administration
- automated scoring and client reports
- ideal tool for planning needed services
Clients view SAS-ASL questions via the provided ASL video and record their responses on the paper questionnaire. Completed questionnaires are then submitted via fax. The auto-score interpretive reports which include each client’s overall screening result, as well as identification of key issues affecting each client will be returned within 2 business days (often same day) by email or fax.
