Elevating Your Daily Teaching Practice

Learn the full power of your n2y program to make your daily engagement with students the best it can be. The Essentials Course—whether taken on-site or online—delves into your program’s capabilities and features to ensure a successful implementation and help you further streamline differentiated content delivery, assessment, skill tracking, progress monitoring, and development of IEPs and transition plans. At the end of the course and final exam (either on-site or online) you will be an n2y Certified Educator.
