How many years has
Northwest AEA been in Siouxland ?
We have been in Siouxland since 1975.

What services do you offer?
Northwest AEA is one of nine AEAs across Iowa that offer special education services to children from birth to 21 years of age; professional development for educators in school districts; and school improvement services.

What is a fun or surprising fact about your business?
The Iowa AEA system was one of the first educational service agencies (ESAs) established in the nation. Much of the legislative language to create Iowa AEAs was written by Sioux City native Dr. E. Robert "Bob" Stephens. There are four national awards in his name bestowed by the Association of Educational Service Agencies (AESA) for outstanding contributions to the field of education.
