Using Social Systems Theory as a theoretical basis for evaluation research, this study sought to examine the role family ecological variables play in the intervention process. 132 families actively involved in the Direct Home Services Early Intervention Program in Newfoundland and Labrador responded to questionnaires and provided information about themselves and their children. Program records were also accessed to obtain information pertaining to the child's handicap and developmental progress. The analysis considered the relationship between child developmental, program, and family ecological variables. Results indicated that family ecological variables significantly effect the intervention process and ultimately the developmental progress of the child.
