Unique Learning System (ULS) is a special education core curriculum for students with moderate to severe disabilities. It also ensures IEP, state, and federal compliance for educators and administrators.

As a solution, ULS is a single easy-to-navigate platform with differentiated lessons and activities aligned to all 50 states’ extended standards. It provides robust academic programs such as ELA, math, science, and social studies as well as transition and life skills support.

Skills and standards are covered in each unit to ensure students get the necessary repetition needed to achieve proficiency. Point-of-use instructional tools, guides, and an alignment document enable students in pre-K through transition to access materials in every unit of study.

With ULS, teachers are easily able to prepare, deliver, and assess instruction, and ULS provides automatic data and reporting, as well as ways to demonstrate student progress. Students using ULS can access a customized Student View that offers a real-time connection with the teacher and lessons and activities that are automatically tailored to their skill level. Accessibility options like text-to-speech are also available.

“Both new and seasoned educators rely on evidence- and research-based methodologies and strategies to create lesson plans that resonate with special needs students while also empowering them to participate, learn, and achieve IEP goals,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “We’re pleased to recognize n2y for their breakthrough Unique Learning System that delivers on this need, setting itself apart from others as a powerful solution that provides inclusive, age-appropriate, and standards-aligned instruction, assessments, and reporting.

We’re proud to accept the 2023 award for ”˜Special Education Solution of the Year.’ ULS brings educators the most inclusive, evidence-based content and instructional support available for their special education programs, like Science of Reading and high-leverage practices. In this way, educators can regain valuable time to focus on helping every student achieve their best.”
