Purose: In this study, the researcher supported the mother (Lin) of a child (Sanben) with developmental delays to develop and implement family-centered education programs at home, and then investigated the process and effects. Methods: This study adopted an action research design. The data collection techniques included unobtrusive measures, observations, interviews, and others (e.g., checklists and scales). After collecting data, the researcher undertook data analysis by a constant comparison method, and then connected themes to derive results. Findings: This study included a two-step spiral process of developing and implementing programs in collaborative partnerships between the researcher, Lin and her family.

In the process of developing the educational programs, the researcher assisted Lin to observe and evaluate Sanben's development and her family's parenting strengths and needs by discussing the assessments summaries. The researcher also guided Lin to integrate the data from family assessments, prioritize educational goals, establish teaching goals at home, and draft educational programs. Lin was responsible for implementing the educational programs. In the process of implementing these programs, the researcher assisted Lin to master and modify specific instructional strategies in terms of teaching records, observation and discussion. Lin was encouraged to generalize the goals into natural home routines and daily activities, and the researcher supported her to routinely implement her plan, mobilize informal family resources, and encourage family members to help teach Sanben. The effects on this study revealed Lin could participate in developing and implementing educational programs with little assistance, mobilize her family's parenting resources, becom
