The growth and development of children with developmental disability depend very much on the parents. The study was designed to examine whether family focused education could enhance parental skills, knowledge and competency. The enhancement would in turn result in greater parental participation in the rehabilitation process of these children. There were 4 stages in this study: (1) identification of parental needs, (2) formulation of Family-Focused Education Programme (FFEP), (3) implementation, and (4) Evaluation of the education programme. An exploratory method using focus group design was adopted to reveal the needs of the parents for the formulation of the FFEP. A convenience sample of 23 parents of children with developmental disability or developmental delay from the Maternal and Children Hospital of GuangDong Province, China were recruited to participate in this interview. The formulated FFEP was then implemented, and evaluated using a pretest-posttest control group design. Forty parents were invited using convenience sampling technique to participate in either a FFEP or a conventional education programme. Repeated measures ANOVA did not indicate any statistically significant changes in parenting knowledge, parental attitude and parental stress before and after the education programme between the experimental group and control group parents. The mean scores of these variables, however, were in the direction of increasing after the programme. It was apparent that the FFEP had enhanced the parental competence. It was therefore concluded that education and training were fundamental means for enabling and empowering the parents.
