Our Program

Proven Strategies to Accelerate Student Success

We support teachers to foster an inclusive environment for children with learning challenges.

Goal Setting

A positive reinforcement system that 92% of teachers say motivates discouraged students and accelerates their rate of learning.

Sensory Learning

Multi-sensory, multi-cultural libraries that equip diverse learners for reading success with books tailored to their needs, and sensory tools that foster self-regulation and focus.

Reading Mentors

Trained, caring mentors and assistive technology designed for students with learning challenges. With 15-minute mentoring sessions at least once a week, students boost their scores an average of one full grade level.

The Shadow Project resources have helped me with increasing my instructional time. I have fewer behavior problems because students understand the expectations for learning.
