N2Y and InclusiveTLC have entered into a strategic partnership focusing on the distribution of Matrix Maker a new software program developed by Inclusive Technology, which incorporates the SymbolStix symbol set. N2Y will offer exclusively in North America the subscription version of the software.
N2Y® is a family-run business started in 1997 by Jacquie Clark, a speech-language pathologist with over 30 years experience. The first product to launch was News-2-You, a weekly current events newspaper designed specifically for special learners. The newspaper began as a weekly classroom project utilizing concise, symbol-supported text to deliver current events news to a population previously denied this information. Today, News-2-You provides subscribers hundreds of pages of dynamic content each week, including news, world news, activities, computer games and storybooks, all related to the feature story of the week. Since the launch of the first News-2-You newspaper, through all the months of Unique Learning System curriculum that have been developed, one symbol set has emerged taking the market by storm and becoming an industry standard in picture based communication. The SymbolStix symbol set was originally developed by N2Y® for use in both the News-2-You newspaper and Unique Learning System curriculum.
The all-new Matrix Maker from Inclusive Technology has been specifically designed to be the simplest and most affordable software for making static communication overlays and education resources.
