The Illinois Alliance of Administrators of Special Education (IAASE) is a non-profit special education administrator organization that promotes educational opportunities for all students with an emphasis on students with disabilities. IAASE is the largest statewide organization of special education administrators in the country and one of the largest CASE Units in the country. Each year, they host two conferences and are regularly called upon by the legislature, colleagues, government officials, and others for expert testimony, guidance, and information about working with students with disabilities. IAASE President, Dr. Kevin Rubenstein states, “The conference is always a great time to learn about all that is happening in our profession. It’s also a great time to convene with friends, colleagues, and other like-minded professionals from across the State of Illinois.”
