I try to be energetic and usually pursue as much as I can find possible. We 
have had an active case with DARS in the past, which was very helpful when we 
were in elementary for the support during ARD meetings.

Rachel has been helpful with us in the past as well, by visiting our home and 
giving us ideas.

I have tried but maybe need to be more creative with DARS. I will reach out to 
Rachel and see how to make it more active for our family again.

I appreciate your sharing and encouragement :-)

Best,
Vivecca
