This cognitive shift toward the adverse effect a communication disorder has on a child’s standard course of study may more colloquially be termed “educational significance.” IDEA requires that all professionals who serve students through special education determine how a child’s disability impacts their performance on the standard course of study (IDEA 1997  Fact Sheet). Speech-language pathologists are called upon to evaluate and treat speech-language impaired children within the framework of the general education curriculum.
