Disability Services

The following is a list of resources that families with special needs children may find useful. There are many additional resources, although we have attempted to list most local groups — or regional/ national organizations if a local resource does not exist.

Links to additional resources for specific special needs are also available at Illinois STAR Net Region II.

Early Intervention for Special Needs describes the process

parents go through to determine services for a child.

Please note that many of these resources depend upon local, state, or federal funding and that availability of services may vary based upon government funding levels.
