Learn about the Brazelton Touchpoints.
More than a decade of extensive and in-depth evaluation shows that Touchpoints-informed practice is proven effective in a variety of organizations and settings, including early care and education centers, pediatric healthcare, mental health, early intervention and home visitation, child welfare, public health, institutions of higher learning (i.e., pediatric residency programs, nursing sites, education sites, and early childhood education quality improvement programs) and Tribal communities. Touchpoints works and skills learned are maintained over time, with reflective practice. Learn more.
The Newborn Behavioral Observations system (NBO) also has a rich body of evidence of its effectiveness. Learn more.
A world in which every child experiences love, joy, and wonder and grows up to be an adult who can strengthen our communities’ capacity for self-determination, cope with adversity, advance racial and economic equity, steward our planet’s fragile resources, and experience the joy of nurturing the next generation to do the same. Every child is all our children.
To partner with family-facing providers, researchers, advocates, policymakers, and their institutions to listen to and amplify the unheard voices of babies, children, and families, and to co-create with them practical, incremental solutions to the challenges they express.
BTC is committed to creating equitable and inclusive opportunities for learning and growth through collaborative, strengths-based, culturally-affirming approaches within its own organization and in its partnerships with all others.
Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Access Statement
At the Brazelton Touchpoints Center (BTC), we are dedicated to creating a lasting community in which equity, diversity, inclusion, belonging, and access thrive. We engage in reflective practices to enhance equitable processes and outcomes, and to reduce bias — including our own. At BTC, we come alongside and learn with the infants, children, families, and communities that we have the honor of working with. While we still have much work to do, we see the path to racial equity and justice as a journey — one that we have wholeheartedly embarked on. BTC is committed to creating equitable and inclusive opportunities for learning and growth through collaborative, strengths-based, culturally-affirming approaches within our organization and in our partnerships with all others.
