Meet the Founder

Transforming Lives to Live with Less Stress & More Joy

Hi, I'm Dr. Elizabeth Joy Shaffer, OTD, OTR/L

Therapeutic Innovations International, LLC was founded in 2015 as a way to provide information, support, and therapeutic interventions to families and children living in foreign countries (ex-pats, foreign service, and military families). As the mission has grown, so has the scope of who we support, and now we invite all who are seeking the type of support and services we offer. An American board-certified occupational therapist and mother mindfully managing neurodiversity, I have both observed and experienced the challenges families (and children) in the neurodiverse community experience. This is why I have created the programs you will find on this site to support our sensitive kids, their teachers, and parents, who are all doing their best to meet their unique needs and challenges.
