In this paper, I considered social work support of the early intervention to the families whose members (especially mothers) are the foreign residents in Taiwan.At first I reviewed the researches on this subject in Taiwan. And I could find the importance of the following elements in the social work practices.1 Self-awareness of the social worker himself or herself to the importance of the multi-cultural identities2 Assessment of the interactions of the family members3 Assessment of the disability of the children4 Assessment of the accessibility of the people in needs to the resources and positive out-reach5 Recognition of the importance of the challenge to the social barriers around thefamily Finally, I could recognize that the researchers suggest the social workers should pay attentions not only to the disability of the children but also to family-centered social work approach and empowerment approach to challenge the social barriers. And they also show these approaches should integrate micro, mezo and macro view points.
