As someone who suffers with Lupus and other auto-immune diseases, information is often difficult to find due to the very nature of this disease. I often have questions and concerns that not even health care providers can answer. This organization has never failed to answer, find an answer and/or suggest sites that can be used to help me. I only wish I had known of them before I had to retire. Everyone should check out this site. It holds a wealth of information!

NAIDW is a great resource for comprehensive information for all adults with disability and injured workers including veterans. I have not seen any other group or page that has so much usable information for adults with disability and average or high IQ. More People with Ability & Disability need to come to the face book and .org pages for the great support and info. I hope NAIDW can grow and add a voice and advocacy for us as most other orgs are focused on children or those with delay. We , many who could with supports we often don't have , need voice to get that hand up to better medical care and if we can a way off the dole. I also like that there is focus on on the job injuries and preventions and other items most other disability groups ignore.

NAIDW is a truly fantastic organization. For anyone who has been injured or who's life has been dramatically affected by an on-the-job injury, NAIDW is an extremely resourceful and caring group created strictly to give needed support to those in desperate need! Being out of work, on limited wages, in pain etc, all while not receiving the care and benefits as a result of an injury can leave one feeling isolated and helpless with little or no hope of something better. NAIDW is a place for those to share their stories, provide and receive support as well as resources to help them get their life back. An A++++ organization all the way!!!

This organization provides a site not only containing valuable information, but a 'life-line' for those needing assistance at a most crucial time in their life. Just having information readily available and knowing others are there that have experienced the same challenges helps. This is not a judgemental or one-sided organization. Providing assistance and guidance is truly the objective and goal of this organization....a real benefit for those needing it most. Doctors, lawyers, various other industries and organizations have subscribed and supported this organization in addition to the disabled and injured.....that speaks volumes, in my opinion!

I think that NAIDW is a foundation that provides everything an injured work needs in the way of information, support and assistance during a time when an injured worker needs the most help. NAIDW provides everything from attorneys and doctors, expectations, sharing personal experiences and provides answers to many questions. As a result and most importantly, it supports families and relationships during a very difficult time in one’s life. I speak from first hand experience, as my husband was an injured worker and now on permanent disability. NAIDW was not in existence at that time so there wasn’t any help or support to be found. The endless hours of phone calls, paperwork, and the run around was devastating while simultaneously facing multiple surgeries, no income and an unknown future. I wish this foundation was available 6-7 years ago as it would have tremendously eased the burden and stress, providing guidance and answers versus isolation and depression. Kudos to NAIDW and it founder!

I commend the organization and support its growth and expansion.

I was injuried in a work-related accident in 2007. I had been a professional person who thrived in a high-pressure job. My brain is still telling my body to do all the active things it used to do, but my body is not able to do most of it anymore, as I am 100% totally disabled. For years I have been made to feel that all of this is my fault. When I found this group, I no longer felt so alone. I want to be more actively involved, but my disability is getting in the way. This group and their website has tons of good information that is updated on a daily basis. It allows for open conversations between it's members. This group cares about it's members. If they don't know the answer to a question, they will find it for you or find where/who you need to contact to get your question answered. If there were more groups like this, there would be fewer stresssed out patients.

As a volunteer, I have the opportunity to see and be part of a foundation with amazing vision. NAIDW offers a plethora of support, guidance and information for injured and disabled workers. This foundations holds true to its mission and that is to offer support when there is no where else to turn. I am proud to volunteer and lend a hand to something that is so needed.

This organization has helped me tremendisly, i was injured at work on April 24, 2007. To make a long story short i now suffer with RSD/CRPS. When i first saw the naidw on my facebook feed a light came on from all of the darkness and unknowns an injured person like myself faces alone. I clicked on there web site and found unlimited resources . I joined a couple of the groups so i could help others and gain there knowledge as well. I enjoy helping other individuals with the knowledge i acquired from living with and going through many Doctors and treatments. There are millions of individuals in the UNITED STATES AND ABROAD who do not have knowledge or great doctors to serve them. This organization is there only route to getting knowledge and resouces they can use to help them and others. Thank you National Injured Disabled Workers
