The Shadow Project
...to become confident, engaged learners,
and turn "I can't" into "I CAN!"
Who We Are
The Shadow Project partners with special education teachers to help close the achievement gap for students with complex learning challenges. Just as wheelchair ramps foster independence for persons with physical disabilities, The Shadow Project helps make learning accessible for boys and girls whose ‘invisible’ disabilities include dyslexia, ADHD, autism and communications disorders. We serve 28 Portland-area schools, providing life-changing classroom enrichment that helps struggling students reach goals and turn “I can’t” into “I can!”
