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 try and address the growing needs of the developmental disorder community. Over the next several years, a multi-disciplinary center, Thoughtful House, was established and expanded to address the many needs recognized to be the most pressing for those diagnosed 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 and her exceptional commitment to philanthropy.
