Resources for Your Child with Learning or Attention Challenges

Families, you know better than anyone about the potential of your child with a learning or attention challenge. You also know what can happen when they don’t have the resources that meet their learning needs.

The Shadow Project teams up with teachers to transform school into a place where kids who learn differently can learn, belong and thrive. Kids with dyslexia, ADHD, autism, trauma and related challenges in our programs have become classroom leaders, mentors and national reading champions.

Why Use a Sensory Space?

A sensory space is somewhere a person can go to self-regulate by using sensory tools to release energy or calm down. Anyone can benefit from a sensory space, but especially those with learning challenges who need extra help with regulating their nervous systems.

Our Stories

``Our kids with disabilities are reminded of their deficits every day. But with The Shadow Project, instead of feeling shame for being in special education, my son felt proud. There’s nothing in schools that celebrates kids’ strengths like this.``
