Organization Profile

The Shadow Project

The Shadow Project envisions an education system that normalizes and celebrates learning differences and supports every student to thrive in school.

The Shadow Project has a proven track record of fostering social and academic growth for schoolchildren with learning challenges such as dyslexia, ADHD, autism, and trauma, many of whom are from communities of color, low-income backgrounds, and/or are English Language Learners. With the conviction that all students can graduate from high school given access to the right supports, The Shadow Project provides innovative tools and techniques tailored to diverse learners and supports teachers in integrating those tools into their classrooms. Together we help to unleash the potential of more than 14,000 capable learners in grades K-12 in Portland, McMinnville, and Salem.
