Abstract: One of the most important challenges that early intervention (EI) has faced in recent years is the transition process from child-based practices to familycentered programmes. This study's main objectives were: (a) To understand the changes identified by the staff in their professional knowledge and practices with families during the transition from a center-based programmes to family-centered practices; (b) To explore the parents' satisfaction with the family-centered practices; (c) To know how professionals perceive the transition from center-based to familycentered practices in EI. Participants were 11 families of children with intellectual disability and 11 professionals from six early intervention centres in Spain. Results showed that professionals valued familycentered services because it allowed them to gather relevant information about the families' strengths and resources. Families perceived their participation as a real empowerment for all family members and positive for their children. Implications for professional practice in EI are discussed.
