The Waco Touchpoints Training Team has trained more than 140 early childhood educators and practitioners since 2012.

The Touchpoints Approach

  • Changes the focus from what’s wrong, to what's right.
  • Doesn’t tell parents what to do, but instead listens to what families need and supports the discovery of what is best for their children.
  • Touchpoints is a practical approach for enhancing the competence of parents and building strong family-child relationships from before birth through the earliest years.
  • This lays the vital foundation for children’s healthy development.
  • Touchpoints offers a training model for practitioners that emphasize the building of supportive alliances between parents and professional around key points in the development of young children.

Waco Touchpoints Goals

  • For parents to strengthen their parenting skills and the parent-child relationship
  • For practitioners to improve in their knowledge and skills in working with children and families.
  • For practitioners to more effectively support and communicate with parents regarding their child’s development
  • For community partners to see the focus on early childhood as for the “common good” and accordingly build stronger networks with one another.
