The teachers at the Cohasset Learning Studio are committed to the science of reading. We proudly serve children from 3 years old through 8th grade. We know that learning to read is not a natural process and that some children will experience a significant struggle. It is our mission to lay a strong foundation for reading readiness before children enter kindergarten. The best way to do this is through play, conversation, read alouds, music, phonemic awareness training, and deliberate exposure to print. Yet despite our best efforts and the efforts of parents, up to 20% of children will struggle with learning to read, spell, and write. The teachers at Cohasset Learning Studio know that using the Structured Literacy approach to teaching reading, spelling, and writing will remediate persistent learning problems, including dyslexia.
The teachers at Cohasset Learning Studio are committed to furthering our own education. We stay current with reading related research through our membership to the International Dyslexia Association and The Reading League. The field of neuroscience related to reading continues to expand and we want to remain on the forefront.
Dr. Abigail Sullivan, Ed.D.
Founder of Cohasset Learning Studio
“Abigail was our daughter’s tutor from third to fifth grade. Our daughter has a learning disability and was struggling to keep up with the school curriculum and her peers. From the beginning, Abigail listened to our concerns and focused on areas that our daughter needed the most help with. She worked with us and our daughter’s teachers so that the weekly tutoring sessions reinforced what was being taught in the classroom. Abigail added tools our daughter could use to help her understand what was being taught at school. Abigail is very team-oriented, always willing to work in conjunction with SPED teachers, classroom teachers and parents. Abigail was always very responsive to emails if we ever had any specific questions or concerns.
Our daughter looked forward to her tutoring sessions with Abigail every week. Abigail is a very patient, motivating and dedicated teacher. She would ask our daughter about her interests and then incorporate those interests into weekly lessons so that our daughter would be engaged, passionate and excited about what she was learning.
Abigail did an excellent job in knowing when to push/challenge our daughter or when our daughter needed a “slower paced” session because she was feeling overwhelmed after a long day. Abigail always kept things light and positive.”
