School Programs for Students with Disabilities

The Shadow Project partners with schools to increase educational opportunities for the 1 in 5 students with learning and attention challenges. Using our programs, students develop strong academic habits, master social emotional skills, and gain up to two years in their reading ability.

We are currently welcoming new school district partnerships for the 2024-25 school year.

Watch our programs in action.

Three Proven Programs to Fuel Student Success

School staff are trained to help students identify and manage their emotions, by taking structured breaks to use tools in SuperSensory Spaces. Kids build skills to reduce the impact of anxiety and frustration, so they can be calm and focused in class.

“The Shadow Project’s ongoing support is essential in helping Centennial students who are experiencing disability and trauma to reintegrate into the classroom.”
