Este trabajo pretende estudiar el nivel de empoderamiento de las familias en relación con la Calidad de los Servicios de Atención Temprana en España, donde en la actualidad se está viviendo una transformación en los modelos de intervención. La recogida de datos se esta llevando a cabo a través de la percepción de las familias receptoras de  estos servicios. Se están utilizando las siguientes herramientas: FOS (Early Childhood Outcomes Center, 2010); FES (Paul E. Koen, Neal DeChillo y Barbara J. Fieson, 1992), FSS (Dunst, Trivette y Jenkins, 1984) y Family FINESSE (McWilliam, 2015). Para llevar a cabo este trabajo, hemos desarrollado el Análisis Factorial Exploratorio de Family FINESSE. Así pues, presentamos los factores analizados en dicha escala, así como otros datos psicométricos de la misma.
