The mission of The Johnson Center for Child Health and Development is to advance the understanding of childhood development through clinical care, research, and education.
In 2004, a group of parents and professionals gathered to consider the growing needs of the developmental disorder community. Over time, a multi-disciplinary center called Thoughtful House was established to address the needs seen as the most pressing for those with developmental disorders: appropriate healthcare, diagnostic, behavioral, and education services; community outreach and support; and research. In 2011, the organization was renamed in honor of Betty Wold Johnson, in recognition of her ongoing generous support of this community.
