Narrative

One of the functions of the Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (MCDHH) is its statewide Interpreter and CART Referral Service. It provides referral services for sign language, spoken English, oral, tactile and close vision interpreting for Deaf and Deaf - Blind individuals, as well as making referrals to freelance CART providers for CART provision on behalf of heard of hearing and/or late deafened individuals in a wide variety of settings such as medical, legal, mental health, employment, education and recreational situations. Although there are fulltime staff interpreters employed by MCDHH, some requests are filled by freelance interpreters. All CART requests are filled by freelance CART Providers.

The function of the Interpreter Screening Program is to provide Quality Assurance for the interpreters who have not yet passed a nationally recognized ASL/English Interpreter certification test and who are working within Massachusetts.
