Bethany Kulig

Bethany graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Disorders. She has recently completed 30 hours of Orton Gillingham Classroom Educator training and 30 hours of Associate level Orton Gillingham training through the Orton Gillingham Academy. She utilizes evidence-based practices to address academic needs in the areas of spoken and written communication. She is on the Legislative Steering Committee for Decoding Dyslexia: Florida and is the State Lead for the Dyslexia-Literacy Collaborative: Florida a Facebook Community which was developed in order to serve the local community and is a place to discuss specific topics, ask questions and seek advice.

As a mother, Bethany is passionate about the child-centered and strengths-based approach to learning. The strength-based approach represents a paradigm shift—a movement away from a deficit-based approach which can lead to a long list of things considered to be ‘wrong’ with a child’s learning and development or things a child cannot do. The deficit- based model fails to provide sufficient information about strengths and strategies to support a child’s learning and development. She believes that it is important to identify strengths and weaknesses in a student’s learning profile in order to assist students to become the best version of themselves. Bethany prides herself in providing parents, teachers and students that support in order to achieve both short term and long-term academic goals.

The Real Bio
Bethany is excited to be living back in her home state of Florida after several years of military living. In her free time, Bethany enjoys exploring Florida and taking extended road trips with her family. She has been involved the arts/performing arts community where her daughter was involved in the performing arts magnet programs and career academies and now spends a lot of time at the beach, where her son attends the only beach-based project-based learning school on the East Coast. In her spare time, she loves to cook, decorate, plan themed parties and spend time with her husband and kids.
