We Believe in the
of Every Individual
It only takes one “aha!” moment—one moment of sheer joy—and a student’s life is transformed forever. n2y is proud to help inspire those moments, and we’re proud to celebrate 25 years at the heart of learning.
It All Started in 1997
The n2y story began in 1997 when speech language pathologist Jacquie Clark wanted to help her students in special education increase their communication, comprehension, and socialization skills. Jacquie created News2you®, a weekly newspaper designed to cultivate literacy development using current events and relevant news. As the way students learn evolved, so did n2y—transforming from print to digital to help individuals with special needs experience meaningful access to the world around them.
Transforming Special Education
n2y launched Unique Learning System®, an online standards-based program that provides students with meaningful access to the general education curriculum. Soon after, SymbolStix PRIME® launched, making available an online search engine and materials creation platform with the most complete and current symbol set available anywhere.
Why We Do What We Do
Changing how special education is taught, n2y is proud to help educators and families inspire those moments of discovery and wonder, celebrating two decades of being at the heart of learning, working side-by-side with you, the educator, to change the way students grow. Through our award-winning solutions, we’ve continued to evolve the way we develop new approaches to educating students with special needs, creating solutions that are engaging, personalized, and confidence-building. It’s that confidence that can easily turn into a lifelong love of learning. And that’s why we do what we do because we believe in the unique potential of every individual student.
Looking Into the Future
Looking ahead, we will continue to create new solutions for the 21st century classroom, helping to inspire more everyday victories for years to come. By working with educators and families just like you, we can continue to be at the heart of learning.
