Title: The role of an educational therapist before and after assessment:  Best practices for collaboration with psychologists and other clinicians.


Presenters: Dorothy Ungerleider, M.A., BCET, Founder of the Association of Educational Therapists (AET), and Susan Grama, M.A., CCC-SLP, current president of AET.


The Association of Educational Therapists is the national professional association for educational therapists.  Founded in 1979, AET defines and sets standards for the professional practice of educational therapy. Educational therapists provide a broad range of individualized educational interventions for children and adults with learning disabilities and other learning challenges.


Dorothy Ungerleider, M.A., BCET

Dorothy Ungerleider, Founder of the Association of Educational Therapists, pioneered the movement to standardize the profession of educational therapy.  She is the author of the books Reading, Writing, and Rage and Educational Therapy in Action.  She mentored public school teachers for the Schools Attuned program and helped develop training programs in Educational Therapy at UCLA and CSUN. She spearheaded a pro bono Community Service Project for two Los Angeles agencies, the Juvenile Justice Connection Project and New Directions for Youth, bringing remedial and advocacy services to an under served high-risk population.  Through the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, she provided workshops for juvenile court judges and probation officers and developed a Bench Book for screening delinquent youth. She has lectured extensively about the complex causes of learning disorders and their effects on behavior and personality.  Ms. Ungerleider received her BSEd in special education of emotionally disturbed youth from the University of Michigan and her MA in learning/reading disorders from California State University Northridge.


Susan Grama, M.A., CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist

Susan has worked in public and private schools and inpatient and outpatient hospital settings where she provided assessment and treatment services for children and adults with acquired and developmental communication disorders. Currently, Susan’s practice focuses on children and adolescents with receptive and expressive language impairment that impacts literacy skills and academic achievement. She also works with adolescents who struggle with mathematics. Susan is a graduate of the University of Michigan and holds a Master’s degree in speech-language pathology from Northwestern University. She has been affiliated with the Association of Educational Therapists since 2007, and has served as allied professional chair, program services chair, and treasurer, and began a term as president of AET in October 2018.
