National Disability ID
The IDA “I” is a universal symbol for people living with disabilities. Our goal is that it quickly becomes recognized by: emergency first responders and medical personnel; retail stores and shopping; transportation companies and facilities; educational institutions; hospitality venues and accommodations; friends, families, coworkers and ultimately the public at large.
Because people living with invisible disabilities are often looked upon with misunderstanding or disbelief when asking for help, IDA wants to change the experience of millions living with invisible disabilities. Instead of spending time and energy having to explain their disability and validate their need for assistance, it is our desire and goal that they can simply receive the support they need when they display their NDID Card.
Whether a person is taking a bus, light-rail, subway, airplane or boat, the NDID Card allows for people living with invisible disabilities to display or present an ID that helps them to request assistance or reasonable accommodation if needed.
