Alberta Education Commendation 

Cause and Effect Early Intervention Services offers a high level of carefully planned intervention to children. The children receive developmentally appropriate instruction through one-on-one instruction, classroom activities, and home-based programming.

"Conclusions of Alberta Education Evaluation"
"The program offered to ECS children with severe disabilities through Cause and Effect Early Intervention Services are well organized, comprehensive, and developmentally appropriate for this group of children. The administration team, the multi-disciplinary teams, and the special education teachers should be commended for their efforts in providing quality intervention programs to children with special needs."
