As schools rise to meet the ever-increasing standards legislated by federal, state, and local governing bodies, challenges in practices and procedures for school-based speech-language pathologists become evident. Among these is the adherence in providing speech and language services to only those students who show an adverse effect in their educational performance as a result of their speech and/or language impairment. The Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA) regulations have not defined adverse effect. It is the responsibility of the state and local agencies to describe an adverse educational impact for each student for whom an IEP is written. However, IDEA does stipulate that the IEP team looks to the general education curriculum in determining both the student’s present levels of performance and adverse effects in accessing the curriculum as a result of the disability.
