This chapter provides an overview of client-centred practice (CCP) as it is opera tionalised when working with children and their families. Whilst family com position has changed signifi cantly over the past two decades (Darlington & Rodger, 2006), within the family unit there are various family members –children, parent/s, siblings and possibly extended family members. The presence of more than one client makes for a complex context for service delivery. Occupational therapists and other team members must be cognisant of the needs of both the child and the family members. In this chapter, we address how services are provided to children and families from an occupation- centred perspective and about the characteristics of ‘best practice’ family-centred service (FCS) provision.
