As the Autism of incidence continues to increase, speech-language pathologists need to consider how language is a part of the student’s entire academic day. This article discusses the Content, Assessment, Review and reflect, Extend (CARE) framework; a guide that helps school-based teams to work systematically and collaboratively in writing goals and assessing student performance. The CARE framework easily works with the Common Core State Standards. This article provides additional recommendations related to technology and in-house supports that may assist the school-based clinician in developing a meaningful and cohesive individualized education program for students with autism.
