Well, you could try re-potting it and cut it back to see if there's any life left in it. Then feed it.

If this doesn't work and no fresh growth appears after a few weeks, I am afraid it is an ex-Schefflera. Sorry, after all those successful growing years.

Whatever you do don't over-water it again! Many house plants can cope with occasional drought.
