Meet the Founder

Empowering Students, Parents, & Educators

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

Therapeutic Innovations International, LLC was founded in 2015 as a way to provide training, support, and therapeutic interventions to children living in foreign countries (ex-pats, foreign service, and military). As the mission has grown, so has the scope of who we support, now helping all children grow and learn through various programs. As an American board-certified occupational therapist and mother mindfully managing neurodiversity, I have both observed and experienced the challenges faced by families, children, and educators in the neurodiverse community. 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 the child's and society's unique needs and challenges.
