Amanda Borer, VP of Customer Success, n2y



The n2y story began in 1997 when speech-language pathologist Jacquie Clark wanted to increase communication, comprehension, and socialization skills in her students in special education. Using current events, Jacquie created a supported newspaper, News-2-You®, a weekly newspaper cultivating literacy with current and relevant news. 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.
