Elizabeth has such a wealth of knowledge from her Occupational Therapist training, but also her own experience in raising kids on the spectrum. She always wants to learn more, so she can pass that knowledge on to her clients and surrounds herself with a network of other practitioners who can support her clients as needed. She is such a warm and caring person, she will feel like your best friend the moment you start working with her, and you'll know you are in good hands.

Mom Spectrum Oasis 

As a special educator and rehabilitator, I accomplished a personal and professional transformation when I met and started working/collaborating with Elizabeth Shaffer. Her words and support helped me be more open-minded, have a greater and deeper understanding for parents and their children, and their everyday struggles and challenges. Elizabeth is extremely professional, extremely knowledgeable, positive, and very passionate about her work, and she is able to convey her knowledge and passion to others. Her guidance helped the foundation of our center, one very unique place for early intervention services for parents and children.
