Fostering literacy, communication and connectionDownload Brochure
A connection to the world and to the people around us is life sustaining. But for some individuals with complex learning needs, that connection can be limited. More than 20 years ago, when speech-language pathologist Jacquie Clark discovered that students with autism and other unique learning needs lacked accessible materials connecting them to current events, she created the symbol-supported newspaper, News2you. Today, this online weekly newspaper, differentiated to four levels, is bridging the gap for students in more than 60,000 classrooms across the country.
Expand horizons and
inclusivity through current events
When students can engage in meaningful conversation with their peers and families about world events, the immediate result is a positive sense of belonging. But the issue-based learning in each weekly edition of News2you also comes with many long-term benefits: the standards‑aligned articles and activities help students build life skills, become more motivated learners and even discover career options.
Access to a world beyond the classroom
As they experience new ideas through the content in News2you, students not only build comprehension and context relative to their community and world, they also develop new critical‑thinking and communication skills‑forming and expressing opinions about what they’re learning. They’re preparing to become productive citizens in life beyond the classroom.
Improved language and literacy skills
Research confirms that students who have access to newspapers in the classroom perform better on standardized reading tests. And for students with unique learning needs, the benefits of interacting with the informational text in each weekly edition are especially far reaching—expanding skills in reading, vocabulary, writing, digital literacy and more!
