to grade‑level extended standards
Since our founding 20 years ago, on the belief that everyone can learn, n2y has delivered differentiated content that enables students to learn, meet expectations and demonstrate their knowledge according to their ability level. Today, in keeping with federal and state mandates for grade-specific, “challenging” academic standards, Unique Learning System enables students with the most complex learning needs to access the general education curriculum for their chronological grade level through their state’s extended standards.
Raise the bar for educational expectations
In compliance with the mandates of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Unique Learning System enables students with complex learning needs to meet the same academic standards as their general education peers by aligning with each state’s extended standards. Our content experts continuously monitor changes to these standards and update materials as needed to ensure students with unique learning needs have consistent and ongoing access to academic and transition skills.
Rely on one trusted source for compliance and time‑saving resources
Easy access to lessons and activities that are differentiated into three levels enables teachers to simultaneously and efficiently reach students of varying ability levels and chronological grade levels in one lesson. Teaching all lessons in a monthly unit helps students master a majority of each state’s ELA and math extended standards every month.
with timely, targeted access to grade‑level standards
In addition to evidence-based differentiated lessons, a full range of supporting resources in Unique Learning System simplify a special educator’s role.
Instructional Targets provide a bridge between the general content standards adopted by a state and the associated content in Unique Learning System designed to reach students with significant disabilities.
Alignment Documents and Skills Tracking help teachers select lessons that will address a targeted standard for a given time frame.
Goals, Preferences and Skills (GPS)
Goal-setting and progress-monitoring resources help identify and reinforce the skills targeted for standards-based goals on a student’s IEP.
Benchmarks & Checkpoints
Benchmark Assessments, daily performance tracking and Checkpoints help determine when a student is ready to advance to new skills and ability levels.
