Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) May 20, 2015
n2y® is pleased to announce that News-2-You was selected as a REVERE Awards finalist in the Classroom competition, Supplemental Resources category, Resources for Learners with Special Educational Needs subcategory. News-2-You was designed to address the problem that many special education students have: lack of new information to drive communication skills. Most news--whether derived from TV, radio or casual conversation-- requires prior knowledge and the ability to generalize. Many special education students do not have these skills and miss out on this important information. News-2-You provides current and breaking news in a concise and simple language format that our students can understand. News-2-You was started by an SLP in the public school setting. The product was so successful in exciting and motivating students that it became an Internet commercial product in 1997 and has grown larger each year.
The REVERE (Recognizing Valuable Educational Resources) Awards recognize creative resources that engage 21st century teachers and learners. Produced by the Association of American Publishers (AAP) PreK-12 Learning Group, the awards are the only of their kind to recognize learning resources in all media, for all ages, and covering a wide array of educational subject areas and learning environments.
- "News-2-You provides access to current events for the special education population by using simplified language and visual supports. The reader-friendly topic stories spur learning and encourage conversations. We are honored to be recognized as a finalist for the Classroom competition for Learners with Special Educational Needs as our company strives to inform and include all learners."
“n2y’s goal has and will always be to enrich and better the lives of individuals with special needs through educational engagement.”
REVERE Award finalists were chosen by evaluation of quality content and design, audience engagement and appropriateness, usability and originality and effectiveness, along with comments and recommendations given by judges. More than 100 evaluators in the education and publishing industries judged the applications. Winners will be announced during the REVERE Awards Gala on June 3 in Washington, DC.
