n2y Solutions Shine Brightly in the EdTech Cool Tools Awards for 2024

(Huron, OH; March 26, 2024) – n2y, a leading provider of special education solutions, is thrilled to announce that a number of its innovative products have been recognized as finalists or winners of prestigious EdTech Cool Tools Awards in 2024. With the theme of “Future Focused for the Win,” these awards celebrate excellence and innovation in educational technology, highlighting solutions that empower educators, students, and families.

Polaris, n2y’s IEP development and progress monitoring solution, was named Best IEP Development Solution. Unlike any other solution on the market, Polaris guides teams through the entire IEP process, helping them write, implement, and monitor impactful, meaningful IEPs that are truly individualized. Teams have a more efficient way to create data-driven present levels statements and SMART goals, then they get automated recommendations for standards-aligned lessons and activities that target areas of growth and tie back to those goals.

Inspire, n2y’s intensive intervention solution, also earned recognition as a finalist in the New Product or Service category. This all-in-one solution provides assessments, gamified warmup activities, lesson plans, instructional activities, progress monitoring, and data to help students who are in Tier 3 intervention close skill gaps and generalize knowledge based on general education standards.

Positivity, n2y’s groundbreaking wellness solution, stood out as a finalist in the Classroom Management Solution category. Designed to foster a positive learning environment, Positivity helps teachers keep students focused on learning in the classroom while spending less time and effort managing and documenting interfering behaviors and creating evidence-based strategies to manage those behaviors than ever before. It includes a Core Behavior Profile that informs BIPs and IEPs, evidence-based strategies that are customizable, automated data collection, and much more to promote prosocial student behavior and data-driven instructional decisions.

SymbolStix PRIME, n2y’s outstanding communication solution, captured attention as a Special Needs/Assistive Technology Solution finalist for its remarkable impact on accessibility and inclusivity. SymbolStix PRIME provides a vast library of symbol-based resources, empowering educators to create engaging learning experiences for students with diverse abilities.

Ed Holmes, CEO of n2y, expressed his gratitude and excitement for the recognition of n2y’s solutions at the EdTech Cool Tools Awards 2024. “We are honored to have our products acknowledged among the best in educational technology,” said Holmes. “At n2y, we love to empower educators, support students, and strengthen communities through research-based solutions that promote inclusivity, accessibility, and engagement. This recognition reaffirms our commitment to supporting teachers and driving student outcomes—across all the instructional, behavioral, communication, and compliance-related needs within districts.”
