Rehabilitation Policy Manual

Updated: April 2017

Due to the transition of programs and services from the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services to the Texas Workforce Commission, references in this manual to DARS now refer to TWC and references to the DARS Division for Rehabilitative Services (DRS) now refer to the TWC Rehabilitation Services Division.

This online manual includes both links to public content and links to content available only to staff.

The information in this manual is current as of the date listed above. If you are a consumer in a rehabilitation services program, policy may have changed since you first applied for services. For information about previous versions of policy, please check with your counselor.
