SuperSensory Literacy Spaces
In 2015, The Shadow Project launched Oregon’s first SuperSensory Literacy Spaces, compact multi-sensory, multicultural libraries tailored to diverse learning needs. These high-demand libraries, used for sensory breaks, quiet reading, audiobook access, focused classwork, and testing, are just one of the services we offer. If you are interested in adding your name to our list of schools desiring a SuperSensory Literacy Space, please fill out the application below. Fees vary by school.
