Julie McLaughlin Gray, an occupational therapist for over 30 years, has extensive clinical experience in stroke and brain injury rehabilitation. She received her BS degree in Occupational Therapy from San Jose State University. She later received a master's degree in occupational therapy and a PhD in occupational science from the University of Southern California. Her doctoral research in occupational science examined the personal experience and complex process of recovery from stroke, and their relationship to occupation. Her publications within occupational therapy and occupational science literature address dynamic systems and occupation, a definition of occupation, occupation-centered practice and the relevance of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health to occupational therapy and occupational science. Dr. McLaughlin Gray has also done extensive training and teaching in the Neurodevelopmental Treatment Approach for adults with hemiplegia, and has presented on interdisciplinary professional education and evidence-based practice in rehabilitation.
