Contact: Beth Bryant, DARS Media Relations Specialist
The Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) starts 2006 with enhanced communication tools to help stakeholders, consumers, employees, media, and legislative offices learn about DARS programs and services.
"This is going to be an exciting year at DARS, and we want to share that with everyone interested in Texans with disabilities and children with developmental delays," DARS Commissioner Terry Murphy said. "It is important that all Texans have access to information about DARS programs and services. So this year we are offering the first DARS Annual Report in English, Spanish, and Braille versions, as well as electronic e-mail updates and an enhanced DARS website."
The DARS Annual Report is an attractive calendar that includes stories about individuals and families served by DARS, financial information, program information, and overviews of each of the four DARS divisions. English, Spanish and Braille versions are available upon request, and an electronic version is available online at www.dars.state.tx.us.
The Annual Report is just one feature of the updated and expanded DARS website. Other new features are meeting notices for all DARS advisory councils, Spanish language options, DARS E-News Updates, and more. To subscribe to DARS E-News Updates website visitors simply select the icon on the home page. This allows them to electronically receive information pertaining to DARS council meetings and other DARS news.
For more information on how to subscribe to DARS E-News Updates or to request a copy of the DARS Annual Report, contact Beth Bryant, DARS media relations specialist, at 512/377-0630, or by e-mail at email@example.com.
