The Northwestern Illinois Association (NIA) is a regional special
education cooperative comprised of seventy-two school districts located
in the ten northwestern counties of Illinois. The primary mission of the
NIA is to provide special education services to children with low incidence
impairments (hearing, vision and orthopedic/multiple disabilities).
The NIA region has been divided into three sub-regions for more effective
planning and service delivery. The NIA maintains its administrative office
in Sycamore with satellite offices located in each of the NIA sub-regions.
Within the region there are fourteen special education districts or cooperatives,
and twenty nonpublic agencies with which NIA personnel work closely in
the provision of special education services.
