    Resum

    One of the most important challenges that early intervention (EI) has faced in recent years is the transition process from child-based practices to family-centered 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 family-centered 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 family-centered 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.
