NAIDW is a wonderful source of information for disabled workers. As a mental health professional, I know how essential it is for disabled people not to get isolated and lose hope. NAIDW, through it's terrific website and it's volunteers provides hope for all disabled workers. It helps people regain their place in the mainstream by affording them comraderie, humor, information to deal with complex legalistic and governmental problems, and opportunities to help others through volunteerism -- to name but a few of it's many benefits. It's people are warm, engaging, honest, and dedicated to helping disabled workers. I highly recommend it.

I was first introduced to the NAIDW while researching how best to re-apply for SSI Benefits for my Wife, a diabetic.

I had heard that there were recent changes in the Disability laws that now favor those affected by diabetes, so I sent an email to the NAIDW and no sooner did I blink, and I go a personal response from the President of the Foundation! He directed me to the Website where I not only found answers to my questions, ut a GREAT support network as well.

I HIGHLY suggest anyone that needs this type of information, and much much more, visit http://www.naidw.org/ NOW!

After spending a great deal of time on the Site, I see NO changes I would make as everything offered is not only FREE, but very easy to navigate!
