Cause and Effect Foundation is an Early Intervention Service for children with special needs. Since 1994, we service children six months to six years in the Calgary and surrounding areas. We provide tailored programming to each and every child with Cause and Effect within preschool, community, and in-home settings. Our team of parents, therapists, child development facilitators and administrators work collaboratively to assist children in achieving maximum development and independence. Our motto is: "play with a purpose!"

What Our Clients Say

  • “Cause and Effect went the extra mile. My daughter, with the assistance of an aide, was introduced to community on a daily basis [such as the] library, swimming, play dates, the gym, and the zoo. She was encouraged to interact and now she is not afraid to do all these things!”
