“n2y has been an active participant at CEC for over a decade. As a company that provides solutions for exceptional children, we cannot say enough about the value of this conference and the community it serves. The recent addition of the Technology Playground has been phenomenal to the CEC line-up. The playground allows attendees to meet with select vendors in a single location for hands-on interaction without roaming all the aisleways. With so many valuable presentations for attendees to sit in on, that time-saving addition really has people congregating and collaborating! Being part of the CEC conference keeps n2y connected to those who change the lives of exceptional children and allows them to share their educational needs, which aids in developing better solutions.”
