    Texas Workforce Commission (formerly called Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS))
     Under our Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program, the goal is to help individuals with disabilities obtain and maintain work that is up to par with their abilities and interests. We work with the individual to identify disability-related barriers to employment and then provide services to help reduce and eliminate those barriers.  One part of our VR program is Transition, in which we provide services to students who are transitioning out of high school and will need services to plan for, obtain and maintain employment. It is typically best to set this up their Jr. or Sr. year but the conversation can be started as early as sophomore year.
