    News 2 You

A connection to the world and to the people around us is life sustaining. But for some individuals with complex learning needs, that connection can be limited. More than 20 years ago, when speech-language pathologist Jacquie Clark discovered that students with autism and other unique learning needs lacked accessible materials connecting them to current events, she created the symbol-supported newspaper, News‑2‑You. Today, this online weekly newspaper, differentiated to four levels, is bridging the gap for students in more than 60,000 classrooms across the country.
