The role of the speech-language pathologist to enable the academic success of students with speech-language impairments using the standards and general curriculum is well established (Haskell, 2004; Power-deFur, 2010; Wallach, 2008). The Common Core Standards Initiative (2011a) emphasizes that “students with disabilities…must be challenged to excel within the general curriculum” (p. 1). The key for the success of students with disabilities is how special education professionals use the standards to enable the success of students with disabilities. The purpose of this article is to provide an approach for using the standards to identify appropriate targets and design intervention.
