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 2023-24 school year.
