World’s First Animations with SymbolStix Support for Students with Disabilities
Huron, Ohio (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
N2Y, based in Huron, Ohio and WonderGrove based in Los Angeles, California, collaborate to create the first and only animated episodes with SymbolStix symbol support in each frame. This unique collaboration was created specifically for students with learning challenges. The animated episodes feature messages of health, nutrition, fitness, safety, citizenship and functional life skills.
Most animated cartoons move quickly and contain content or language that may confuse younger viewers or individuals with intellectual disabilities. Incorporating SymbolStix support into the popular WonderGrove animations adds context and understanding specifically for this population. The release of these short, animated episodes is an industry first and will provide the symbol support necessary on each frame which facilitates learning for students with intellectual disabilities.
SymbolStix symbols are also prevalent throughout the entire N2Y product suite including the News-2-You weekly newspaper and Unique Learning System curriculum, both of which are widely adopted throughout the United States. Please visit http://www.n2y.com or http://www.wondergrovekids.com for more information on accessing these animated episodes.
