Touchpoints practice guides the work of Maine Families home visitors so that together you can provide the care and support your child needs to be healthy and ready to learn. The Touchpoints Approach is based upon the research and practice of internationally recognized pediatrician, T. Berry Brazelton, MD. Dr. Brazelton has served and listened to the concerns of over 25,000 parents and children.

 

You can expect a Touchpoints trained Maine Families Home Visitor to:

  •        
  • Talk with you and your child with respect and understanding.
