Purpose The purpose of this article is to introduce the Clinical Forum: Exploring Curriculum-Based Language Assessment and Interventions, which investigates the current evidence supporting curriculum-based language intervention and assessment.

Method This introduction highlights the need for speech-language pathologists to approach intervention with knowledge of the best evidence available and highlights the 6 articles presented in this clinical forum.

Conclusion The articles in this clinical forum shed light on the current state of the evidence for curriculum-based language intervention and assessment across the educational continuum. Authors provide readers with access to techniques available to all school-based speech-language pathologists to advocate for, assess, and implement interventions within the classroom curriculum. This forum also establishes the need for more data to support current school-based models of assessment and intervention.
