At the Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS), we partner with Texans with disabilities and families with children who have developmental delays to ensure they have equal opportunities to live independent and productive lives. We believe that our consumers come first and that understanding each of our consumers' goals is the first step to providing quality service. This individualized approach has allowed us to witness many success stories since we opened our doors March 1, 2004.

DARS provides rehabilitation, early childhood intervention, autism, blind, and deaf and hard of hearing services. Through vocational rehabilitation, food service management training and independent living services, DARS helps Texans with disabilities find jobs and live independently in their communities. We work with families to help children who have disabilities, such as developmental delays and autism spectrum disorders, to reach their full potential. DARS also makes disability determinations for Texans who apply for Social Security benefits.

This report is published annually by the Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services.
