About the Author:

Janette Schkade, PhD, OTR, FAOTA, after graduating with a PhD in psychology, practiced a psychologist in a state school for the mentally challenged, working with clients who had multiple physical as well as mental disabilities. It was in this environment that she learned about occupational therapy and what it could do for this population. She then obtained her education in occupational therapy from Texas Woman’s University. She is a co-author of the Occupational Adaptation Theoretical Framework. She has presented at national and regional conferences on this framework, both as theory and as a vehicle to guide practice. She is the author or co-author of numerous publications regarding occupational adaption, both in scholarly journals and book chapters.      

Melissa McClung, OTR has been practicing with the occupational adaption theoretical perspective for 10 years. She has had the opportunity to use the theory in practice with patients, in redesigning existing occupational therapy programs, and in student programs in clinic settings-most currently in classroom curriculum design/implementation as a faculty member at Texas Woman’s University, Denton. She has presented her approach to occupational adaptation at national and regional conferences. Prior to becoming an occupational therapist, she practiced as a music therapist for 8 years.
