The Brazelton Touchpoints Center (BTC) provides professional and leadership development, organizational learning and change, and research and evaluation services for family-facing professionals in pediatrics, early childhood, infant mental health, children’s libraries and museums, home visiting, and child welfare. BTC is home to the Touchpoints Approach, the Brazelton Institute (the Newborn Behavioral Observations system and the Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale), the Indigenous Early Learning Collaborative, Family Connections, and the BTC Research and Evaluation team. At BTC, we are dedicated to creating a lasting community in which equity, diversity, inclusion, belonging, and access thrive.

BTC is based in the Division of Developmental Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital, the nation’s leading children’s hospital (US News and World Report).
